In June 2019, the New York State Legislature passed into law the New York State Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act (HSTPA). From the outset, the HSTPA legislation was met with widely different reactions. Many praise HSTPA as a necessary change for mitigating increases in rent and protecting rent-stabilized housing from deregulation. Others worry that the tenant protections have gone too far, and HSTPA will lead to building disinvestment and the eventual degradation of housing quality by preventing landlords from raising the rent income necessary for regular upkeep or capital upgrades to their properties.
Hudson Valley Pattern for Progress was commissioned by the BRI to provide an objective assessment of the preliminary impacts of the HSTPA legislation in Westchester County. Pattern has spent the past two years working on a report presenting an objective and fact-based analysis of the preliminary impacts of the HSTPA legislation, using a combination of qualitative and quantitative research methods.
Come to our February General Membership to learn about their key findings and what they mean both for public policy and for Westchester’s real estate market in the future.
