The rule amendments to Chapter 41 of Title 28 of the Rules of the City of New York (the "Inclusionary Housing Rules") would limit the zoning bonus generated by 421-a affordable units to usage on the same zoning lot as the building containing the 421-a affordable units or buildings on a development site on which the affordable housing units are located where the development site includes two or more zoning lots that were reviewed and approved as a single unit pursuant to the New York City Zoning Resolution.

Adopted Rules Content: 

The adopted 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 makes 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 adopted rule also includes minor plain language revisions.

HPD’s proposed rule amendments would conform the proof of the applicant's actual expenditures required as part of the application for J-51 benefits to the relevant professional standards for Certified Public Accountants. The proposed amendments would allow Certified Public Accountants to provide HPD with satisfactory evidence of the J-51-related cost of construction while avoiding any conflict with professional standards by using terms consistent with the relevant professional standards for “attest engagements.”

Proposed Rules Content: 

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.
