May 12, 2011

Last night I went to a meeting put together by Assembly Member Daniel O’Donnell. Mr. O’Donnell presented information on why we need to get the Rent Stabilization laws renewed and improved by June 15, 2011. I think it goes without saying this is a first step as to what needs to be done in order to have protections in place for Rent Stabilized Tenants. However I think it is extremely important to keep up the pressure to correct the system that governs these laws, particularly DHCR. If the laws pass again as we all think they will, we will be left with all the problems of enforcing these laws.

 It occurred to me that the Landlords are not to upset with the current situation because many of them do not abide by the rules to begin with. Mr. O’Donnell said he is personal friends with the new commissioner of the DHCR. All well and good, however I do not care that he knows this persons Wife and kids. I care that this person does his job in a fiduciary manner protecting the rights of all involved.

Having Rent Stabilization renewed without fixing the governing body is lowering the bar. The administration of the laws needs to be corrected. A start is to look at my agenda (below) and look to others who have been trying to get these laws adhered to in the past. June 15 is just the first step. We need to fix the entire problem.
