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 Any determinations to be made under the policy were completed, and therefore the rules may be repealed.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 The initiative identified rules that will be repealed or modified to reduce regulatory burdens, increase equity, support small businesses, and simplify and update content to help support public understanding and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.
