Stand for Tenant Safety Report
Stand for Tenant Safety Coalition with Research Support from the Community Development Project at the Urban Justice Center
The survey aims to document how major construction has impacted the health and well-being of tenants in rent-stabilized apartments in New York City and to explore the extent to which such construction constitutes tenant harassment. The survey and supplemental secondary data from the Department of Buildings also aims to better understand how effectively the Department of Building’s inspection units address problems with construction when they are reported by tenants. The DOB data also documents the degree to which the DOB fines landlords that violate rules and regulations, and the status of collecting those fines.
