Press Conference on Multiple Dwelling Registration Bill Held Today

About 100 members of Make the Road New York and the Association for Neighborhood and Housing Development (ANHD) joined Melissa and Council Member Chin on the steps of City Hall today to call for the passage of the soon to be re-introduced multiple dwelling registration bill.

This legislation, which was first introduced by Melissa last term, will help tenants of those buildings owned by LLCs to more easily reach their landlords when problems with their housing arise.  Under this legislation, corporate owners would have to provide the City with the names and contact information of their principal partners, information which, for some tenants, is currently only learned through legal action.

At the press conference, tenants and advocates spoke about the difficulties they faced in trying to get housing issues resolved when the only information they had for some landlords was a P.O. Box number.
