HPD is authorized to administer a program to review and investigate applications for Certifications of No Harassment, which are required to alter or demolish any single room occupancy building Citywide and all residential buildings in specially designated zones throughout the City, under Administrative Code sections 27-2093 and 28-207.1, and Zoning Resolution sections 96-110, 93-90, 98-70, and 23-013. The proposed rule would increase the fee for such applications to align it with the agency cost in administering the program.

Adopted Rules Content: 

The adopted rule implements the Department of Housing Preservation and Development’s authority pursuant to Zoning Resolution §23-96 to waive certain provisions of the Zoning Resolution.  Specifically, Zoning Resolution §23-96(b), (c), and (d) authorize HPD to waive the requirements for height and horizontal distribution, the distribution requirements for bedroom mix, and the size requirements of affordable housing units, respectively, for substantial rehabilitation affordable housing on generating sites.  HPD will waive such requirements under one or more of the following circumstances: (1) there are tenants who are returning to such affordable housing units after rehabilitation is completed, (2) the building is the subject of an in rem tax lien foreclosure judgment for the City of New York, or (3) the building is owned by a housing development fund corporation or other entity designated by HPD.

 

HPD’s ability to waive these requirements under these circumstances will help to preserve existing unit configurations to allow occupants to return after rehabilitation is completed.  This is important because where buildings are fully or partially occupied the ability to waive these requirements will avoid any diminution in the number of units rehabilitated and ensure that occupants can return to their units.  In addition, the ability to waive these requirements can result in the creation of more affordable housing units under certain HPD programs.
