Statement of Basis and Purpose


Pursuant to § 282 of Article 7-C of the Multiple Dwelling Law (“Loft Law”), the Loft Board may promulgate rules to ensure compliance with the Loft Law. In June 2010, the Legislature amended the Loft Law by enacting Chapter 147 of the Laws of 2010, which, among other things, amended § 282 of the Loft Law.


Section 282 authorizes the Loft Board to designate the Environmental Control Board (“ECB”) to enforce violations of the Loft Law. In accordance with the terms of MDL § 282, this proposed amendment to section 1-07.1 of Title 29 of the Rules of the City of New York clarifies that the procedures for appeal in § 1-07.1, relating to appeals from administrative determinations, do not apply to appeals from ECB determinations.


The proposed amendments further clarify that the procedures in § 1-07.1 apply to: 1) appeals from determinations by Loft Board staff with respect to any matter that does not have to go to the full Board for a determination and 2) to determinations by a Loft Board hearing officer with respect to housing maintenance standard violations under § 2-04 of these rules. Finally, the proposed amendments include minor technical changes with respect to the procedures for filing an appeal.
