404-A - Illegal Conversion of Permanent Housing


Local law Number 404-A, This legislation increases fines for illegally converting permanent housing to transient use.

Remarks by Mayor Bloomberg:

“The illegal conversion of permanent housing for use by transient guests causes serious problems for permanent residents, including limiting the supply of available housing, creating unsafe living conditions, and harming neighborhood character.  In 2010, the Governor signed legislation to clarify the definitions of permanent and transient housing, to clearly define transient where a guest stays for 29 days or less.

Introductory Number 404-A builds on the State law by creating a specific violation for the illegal conversion of a residential unit, and requiring that a repeat violation issued for the same unit or building be classified as an immediately hazardous violation, which carries a $1,000 to $25,000 penalty.  Increasing these penalties for illegal conversions will help to ensure that the City’s enforcement efforts are more effective.
