Good Cause

Grants every tenant in New York State protections against unjust evictions and unreasonable rent increases.

  • Good Cause requires landlords to justify rent hikes greater than 3% (or 150% of the Consumer Price Index) and gives tenants the power to challenge evictions that are arbitrary, retaliatory, or discriminatory.
  • Would protect 1.6 million New York households in every corner of the state, nearly half of the state’s renters as a whole.
