New Tenant Protections



SEPT. 19 @ 6 PM, 125 BARCLAY ST  

“New York State lawmakers and Gov. Cuomo have approved the biggest overhaul of New York’s rent laws in a generation, offering New York City tenants new protections against rent hikes and evictions and putting the powerful real estate lobby on the defensive.” – NY Post, June 14, 2019

Housing experts from DC 37’s Municipal Employee Legal Services and special guest speaker Michael McKee, founder of New York State Tenants and Neighbors Coalition, want to help you understand the revolutionary changes in rent and tenant protection laws that have landlords up in arms.

Come to DC 37’s MELS Housing Workshop on Thursday, September 19, 6 pm to 8 pm in Room 1, at 125 Barclay St. in Lower Manhattan.

To attend, please register before Sept. 18.
