Tenants Living in City-owned Buildings: Succession Rights

P.A.’L.A.N.T.E. Harlem partnered with Keith L.T. Wright, Chairman of the Housing Committee in the New York State Assembly to hold a public forum for tenants living in City-owned properties (TIL & ANCP). As a result of our collaborative efforts and those who attended the session, The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development adopted new rules governing tenant succession in buildings under its jurisdiction.

Until our involvement, there were no clear guidelines governing rights of succession for long-term occupants whose names do not appear on the lease for an apartment. This meant that when a lessee would permanently vacate a unit, or in the event of their death, the remaining occupant would have no clear path to prove their right to stay, as became the case for many residents who moved back into an aging parent or family member's home to help provide for their care.

We look forward to continued partnerships with Assembly Member Wright, the West Harlem Development Corporation, and The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) so that we can preserve our low-income coops (HDFC) and ensure that tenants living in City-owned buildings realize their dream - first time homeowners.

Tenants wishing to apply for succession rights should contact the tenants' association Board of Directors or P.A.'L.A.N.T.E. Harlem to secure a copy of the application.
