The proposed rule implements legislative amendments to Administrative Code §27-2005, through which owners are required to provide notice to tenants, on a form approved by HPD, of the procedures that should be followed when a gas leak is suspected. The rule is intended to make clear to owners the information that should be provided on notices informing tenants of procedures to be followed in the event of a suspected gas leak and includes sample forms that may be used by owners for such purpose. Additionally, the rule clarifies what records must be kept by owners for smoke detecting devices and carbon monoxide alarms. The proposed rule also includes minor plain language revisions.

HPD provides relocation services to tenants whose buildings have been issued a vacate order. Amendments to Administrative Code § 26-301, made by Local Laws 14 and 16 of 2017 effective August 14, 2017, will eliminate the agency’s requirement that affected tenants must apply for relocation services within 90 days after a vacate order is issued, and clarify that affected tenants may apply for relocation services at any time while a law, regulation or order is in place which requires occupants to vacate the building. Consistent with these local laws, the proposed rule also: • requires potential relocatees, after receiving notification of confirmed eligibility for relocation services, to notify HPD in writing within 30 days whether they accept relocation services, • amend the relocation services that the agency may provide, and makes those services dependent on the circumstances and timing of the relocatee’s displacement, • provide that a relocatee will only be eligible once for such services • incorporate local law amendments regarding documentation that may be submitted to confirm occupancy of the vacated building, and • provide information regarding how to appeal the agency’s decision when relocation services are denied.

HPD’s proposed rule amendments extend Chapter 50 of the Rules of the City of New York to include rules relating to the Comptroller’s enforcement authority under RPTL Section 421-a(16)(h). The proposed rule amendments also add the requirements for the Comptroller’s enforcement of the minimum average hourly wage requirement for construction workers in the relevant projects. The Comptroller’s hearing practice and procedure are covered by existing rules codified at Chapter 2 of Title 44 of the Rules of the City of New York. HPD’s authority for these rules is found in sections 1043 and 1802 of the New York City Charter and RPTL Section 421-a.

Adopted Rules Content: 

The Special Initiatives Program (“SIP”) of HPD’s Division of Homeless Housing Development utilized vacant City-owned buildings to develop permanent housing for the formerly homeless. The purpose of the SIP Occupied Sales Program (“SIP Program”) was to dispose of these buildings to qualified sponsors. The SIP Program rules in Chapter 29 were enacted to effectuate and regulate the SIP Program. All buildings in the SIP Program were sold to qualified sponsors more than twenty years ago. With the completion of the SIP Program, the SIP Program rules no longer serve any purpose, and therefore they may be repealed. For this reason, HPD repeals Chapter 29. This rule was identified as part of a comprehensive rules review initiative undertaken by the NYC Mayor’s Office of Operations, working with the City’s rulemaking agencies, the Law Department, and the Office of Management and Budget. The initiative identified rules that will be repealed or modified to reduce regulatory burdens, increase equity, support small businesses, and simplify and update content to help support public understanding and compliance.

Adopted Rules Content: 

The rule amendments would, under very limited circumstances, allow certain projects with Housing Assistance Payments Contracts to register 120% of HUD Contract Rents as the State Division of Housing and Community Renewal legal regulated rent, which would be above the current rent cap of 30% of the applicable Area Median Income. This would allow owners to collect the full subsidy available from HUD through the Housing Assistance Payments Contracts.
