Proposed Rules: Closed to Comments
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. Section 282 of the Multiple Dwelling Law (“MDL”) also states that the Loft Board may charge and collect reasonable fees in the execution of its responsibilities.
Effective as of June 21, 2010, the Legislature amended the Loft Law. To improve clarity and organization, the Loft Board intends to amend § 2-11 of the Rules of City of New York. The proposed amendments are the following:
- Update the fee for filing a challenge to a proposed sale of improvements to conform to the existing fee provided in §2-07;
- Amend the deadline for the application filing fee and the deadline for the request for a waiver of the filing fee. Both the application filing fee and the request for a waiver are now due upon filing the application;
- Provide that the Loft Board may request additional or supporting documentation related to an applicant’s request for a waiver of the application fee; and
- Add headings to subsections.
