Allow evictions for "Good Cause" only!


Kathy Sheehan & Kamal Johnson: New York needs good-cause eviction protections (Daily News Opinion)


In major victories for tenant advocates this year, Albany and Hudson made history by becoming the first municipalities in New York to enact “Good Cause” legislation meant to keep residents of unregulated buildings safely housed and to prevent homelessness. With the passage of this legislation, tenants can defend themselves against retaliatory evictions, advocate for repairs, and receive protection against exorbitant rent hikes — making the innovative housing policies adopted in Albany and Hudson the first stop in a campaign to take Good Cause legislation statewide and extend these protections to all New Yorkers.
