Title 28: Department of Housing Preservation and Development

Adopted Rules: Closed to Comments

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.

Adopted Rules Content: 

The rule amendments reflect what has traditionally been HPD’s practice by clarifying HPD’s ability to revoke tax benefits granted before all eligibility criteria are fulfilled when those criteria are not fulfilled in a timely manner.. They also clarify the wording of §39-05 to unambiguously reflect HPD’s policy of delivering notices by mail to both the fee owner and, where relevant, the mortgagee, in addition to the notices delivered by mail to the real property tax bill addressee and both the agent and the owner identified in the multiple dwelling registration. Finally, the proposed rule amendment adds “Noticed Property” as a defined term, in order to put §39-05 in plainer English and thus make it easier to read and understand.

Adopted Rules Content: 

The unauthorized occupant policy rules for City-owned buildings under HPD's jurisdiction in Chapter 19 were enacted to regularize the process for evaluating unauthorized tenancies. The policy expired on February 29, 1992, and, therefore, the rules may be repealed. 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 The initiative identified rules that will be repealed or modified to reduce regulatory burdens, increase equity, support small businesses, and simplify and update content to help support public understanding and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.

HPD’s proposed rule amendment would, under very limited circumstances, allow new multiple dwellings that have a project-based Section 8 contract for subsidies from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (“HUD”) that would cover the difference between the tenant’s payment (30% of such tenant’s income) and 120% of HUD Contract Rents 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 cap of 30% of the applicable AMI.

Proposed Rules Content: 

The unauthorized occupant policy rules for City-owned buildings under HPD’s jurisdiction in Chapter 19 were enacted to regularize the process for evaluating unauthorized tenancies. The policy expired on February 29, 1992, with a final notification process and deadline of May 31, 1992. Any determinations to be made under the policy were completed, and therefore the rules may be repealed. Currently, HPD’s rules in Chapters 21, 24, and 34 apply to tenancies in City-owned buildings under HPD’s jurisdiction. For these reasons, HPD proposes to repeal Chapter 19.

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.

 Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule

Article V of the Private Housing Finance Law (“Redevelopment Companies Law”) was a precursor to the Mitchell-Lama program.  It authorizes the City to sell property and grant partial tax exemptions to "redevelopment companies" that develop housing projects with private financing.  A sponsor's plan and project for area redevelopment requires approval by the City Planning Commission and the City Council.  The City Council also approves a tax exemption for such developments and a contract with each redevelopment company regulating rents.

HPD is proposing to repeal the Redevelopment Companies Rules.  The Redevelopment Companies Law provides sufficient guidance and, therefore, the rules are unnecessary.

Working with the City’s rulemaking agencies, the Law Department, and the Office of Management and Budget, the Office of Operations conducted a retrospective rules review of the City’s existing rules, identifying those 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. This proposed rule repeal was identified through this initiative.

HPD’s authority for these rules is found in sections 1043 and 1802 of the New York City Charter and section 117 of the Private Housing Finance Law.
