Tuesday, October 2, 2007


On Monday, September 24, 2007, Senator Connor submitted testimony before senior DHCR (Division of Housing and Community Renewal) officials praising Governor Spitzer and DHCR Commissioner Deborah Von Amerongon for their plans to close loopholes in the rent regulations and to combat landlords who abuse the "unique or peculiar clause". This clause has allowed unscrupulous landlords to give their relatives or friends artificially low rents or sweetheart deals. After these tenants move out, the owners deregulate the apartments by raising the rents to more than $2000.00 per month. Deregulation takes these units out of the rent stabilization system forever.
