NYSAR-Supported Coop Transparency Bill Introduced in Assembly
This week, Assemblymember Charles Lavine (Chair of the Assembly Judiciary Committee) introduced NYSAR-supported legislation that would create the Fairness in Cooperative Homeownership Act (A.5856/S.2846). This bill would establish reasonable timelines for coop boards to respond to prospective home purchasers throughout the application and review process in order to combat illegal discrimination. On Friday, NYSAR staff met with Assemblymember Lavine’s office to encourage the inclusion of this bill in an Assembly fair housing package should they take one up this year.
Rent Relief Bill Moves through Senate Housing Committee
State lawmakers continue to work on passage of legislation to create new guidelines for the distribution of $1.3 billion in rent relief approved by Congress in December and an estimated $1.5 billion expected from the COVID relief package currently being debated in Congress. Under the state rent relief bill, the program would cover up to a year of rent and utility arrears and allow for an additional three months of each if funds are available once resources have been distributed to initial applicants. The bill passed through the Senate Housing Committee this week and has not yet moved in the Assembly. Learn more.
