 Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule

Chapter 396 of the Laws of 2016, enacted on October 21, 2016, establishes two new provisions of law: section 212 of the New York State Multiple Dwellings Law, and section 27-287.1 of the Administrative Code of the City of New York (the City’s Building Code). Both provisions prohibit the advertising of dwelling units in a Class A multiple dwelling, as defined in the Multiple Dwelling Law, for any purpose or use other than permanent residential occupancy. This prohibition applies to all forms of advertising, including electronic and printed materials, television, and radio. The statute specifies that it is to be enforced in New York City by the Mayor’s Office of Special Enforcement.

The purpose of this proposed rule is to implement chapter 396 of the Laws of 2016 by specifying the penalties for violation of the statutory prohibition. Persons found to have violated the prohibition will be fined $1,000 for the first violation, $5,000 for the second violation and $7,500 for the third and subsequent violations. Like all violations of the City’s Building Code, notices of violation relating to the new prohibition will be returnable at the Environmental Control Board.

The authority of the Mayor’s Office of Special Enforcement for these rules is found in section 1043 of the New York City Charter and section 27-287.1 of the New York City Administrative Code.

 STATEMENT OF BASIS AND PURPOSE

In conjunction with rulemaking conducted by the Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS), the Mayor’s Office is proposing to revise the process by which certain deed restrictions are modified or removed by the City of New York.

 Deed restrictions are covenants that limit the uses of property.  DCAS and other City agencies have imposed deed restrictions on thousands of properties throughout the City, both through the process by which City-owned properties are sold and also through the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure.

These rules will add new layers of review regarding proposed amendments to certain deed restrictions.  A committee composed of officials from the Mayor’s Office, Office of Management and Budget, and Office of the Corporation Counsel will review each proposed modification or removal of a deed restriction recommended for approval by DCAS before the proposed modification or removal is presented to the public and to the Mayor.  The committee shall also determine the amount of any consideration required in connection with such proposed modification or removal. Requests for modification or removal presented to the committee for approval must also be approved by the Mayor to take effect.  In addition, proposed modifications or removals of deed restrictions submitted to the Department of Housing Preservation and Development will be reviewed for approval by the Mayor or a Deputy Mayor who oversees housing and/or economic development.

The Mayor’s Office’s authority for this rule is found in Section 1043 of the New York City Charter.
