As your 2020 New York State Association of REALTORS® President-Elect, we strongly oppose state legislation (S.2892/A.5030) that would establish a “good cause” eviction standard statewide, essentially providing tenants with a lifelong lease and imposing an annual rent increase cap of 1.5 times the Consumer Price Index. This would apply to all non-rent regulated buildings with four units or more.


Watch these videos released by the Rent Stabilization Association explaining the issue and harmful impact of “good cause,” also known as “just cause” eviction.

“Lease for Life” is not good for New York State, your local neighborhood, your local business, tenants, building owners, and all homeowners!

Please contact your NYS Senator and Assemblyperson to stop the madness!
