NYC Landlord Watch List

482 Central Park West
Mayor Bill de Blasio recently signed a bill that will require the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) to post a list of  the names of landlords found in housing court to have harassed tenants on its website, hoping the public shaming will be a deterrent.

The measure also increases the maximum penalty for such landlords to $10,000 per residential unit. The measure expands a 2008 city law prohibiting tactics, such as interrupting utilities, that are commonly used in an effort to force tenants to vacate an apartment or waive their tenancy rights.

The NYC “landlord watchlist” compiled by Public Advocate Letitia James from violation reports is publically listing on it's website buildings with serious violations. 
This list is based on Department of Housing Preservation and Development (“HPD”) violations, as well as info from constituents and other sources.
The list of buildings include the owners, head officers and number of violations. For a landlord to be added to the Watch List, they must own a building with fewer than 35 units with an average of at least three open, serious violations (B and C violations) per unit. Larger buildings must have an average of at least two open, serious violations (B and C violations) per unit.
