State Specific Question About: NEW YORK (NY)

Does anyone know if the new law that the governor signed goes into effect immediately, including current leases? Am I obligated to refund security if I have more than one month's? --69.206.xxx.xxx

NYS new law (by Ken [NY]) Posted on: Jul 9, 2019 6:55 AM

It went into effect immediately on june 14 with no notice,i do not know if you should refund security deposits,talk to your attorney.I don't have any securities in excess of one months rent but I wouldn't return it if I did,i would consider rewriting it and calling it last months rent --72.231.xxx.xxx

Freedom and liberty are NOT passed down through the generations -

SELL & MOVE - NOW !!!!!!

My best friend was a CPA quit NYS and sold his firm and would rather live as a pauper than put up with Stalag NY.

Your freedom to move is one of the last freedoms. Your money use to be free to do with what you want - one Party on its own made you buy health Insurance -

Think about it - Life is way too short to not move NOW --24.62.xxx.xxx

NYS new law (by Deanna [TX]) Posted on: Jul 9, 2019 8:51 AM

Just piggybacking onto NHSailmaker's excellent point-- that's one of the reasons why the Founders protected State powers, and kept the Federal government limited. That way, you could have (13) (50) (however many) experiments in government running simultaneously, without cratering the whole country. However, since FDR, there's been a lot of federal overreach and a general homogenization as a result.

But the intent was-- if you didn't like how CT dealt with gun control, you could move to TX. If you didn't like how CA dealt with taxes, you could move to MT. If you didn't like how GA dealt with marriage, you could move to MA. If you didn't like how NJ dealt with ll/tenant law, you could move to CO. Or whatever. And if enough people were disaffected by what the government opted to do, that they voted with their feet... then they could look at themselves, in theory, and say, "Look at the business growth in IN... what's IN doing that makes them so successful? Perhaps we should copy them?" and at the same time, say, "Ew, look at VT. What are they doing? There's no way we're doing that."

So, yeah. I grew up without roots, because my Dad was Navy... but it was a conscious decision to stay in TX.

We vote. Is there no way to vote these people out or is there too much ballot box stuffing? Maybe there is a way for northern NYS to secede from the rest of the state? --173.61.xxx.xx

NYS new law (by Ken [NY]) Posted on: Jul 9, 2019 2:13 PM

I will move when I can but my parents are in the 80s and I cant leave them here alone.The governor wins the election every 4 years with the NY city vote,those of us voting against him upstate are not nearly enough.In the meantime I will figure out how to deal with the new laws and I will begin screening much harder and keeping a better quality of house where I can get better tenants applying --72.231.xxx.xxx

NYS new law (by cjl [NY]) Posted on: Jul 9, 2019 6:00 PM

I still haven't seen nor heard about this new law. They obviously kept it out of the news. I'm not returning ANYTHING prior to whatever was signed. Too bad for them - they can sue if they want. I'll have them sign my new leases indicating that the SD is the same amount as the rent BUT there are now other "deposits" that are invoked.

Don't like it? Don't rent from me. That's all that this does - makes landlords end up changing what they collect and how. I don't typically do first, last and security because I "upped" my security that if someone starts to "slip" if I feel they are jerking my chain I immediately start eviction. I typically will be even.

Now that they are changing the laws I'm thinking of doing last month. What's that going to do? It's going to make all these people NOT be able to move because they have to come up with THREE TIMES the rent instead of two (first and security). THEN, NY will change that you can't ask for last month rent.

Somewhere (probably on here) someone posted that they are making it more difficult to do evictions in NY too no more "3 Day Pay or Quit" I haven't seen that either (when I look it up it still states these - so who knows.

I'd like to give the governor a 3 Day. --69.201.xx.xxx

NYS new law (by Ken [NY]) Posted on: Jul 9, 2019 7:55 PM

cji, I think it is called 2019 NY state tenant protection act 14 day notice after a 5 day grace period instead of a 3 day notice that could be served on the 2nd,10-17 notice instead of 5-12 of court appearance judge can give a hard luck case 6-12 months free rent in your unit,sheriff now has to give 14 day notice instead of 3 days before they can show up with you and remove the tenant --72.231.xxx.xxx

It's weird to me that this was enacted without any written guide (either in the law itself or otherwise released) explaining what to do with existing deposits over the one-month limit. I mean, they had to have known that there were lots of them out there -- it's just crazy to me to introduce new law lowering this limit without any information for LLs on how to handle that change.

Also, 14 days is so short for deposit return/accounting! Good luck, people!

If you are NOT planning of moving from STALAG NYS.... then you are part of the astronomical NYS problem

There is absolutely no hope for that so-called state. I use to work in NYC in RE and that rapid change for the worse under an avowed Socialist Mayor is so startling its is amazing anyone lives there

I was born and raised in Cooperstown NY and my friends and family only cross back over the DMZ in an Emergency.

It was the Empire State...... but now is the STALAG state

Same applies to CA and IL and others

MOVE !!!!! - It is your very last freedom --24.62.xxx.xxx

NYS new law (by Wilma [PA]) Posted on: Jul 10, 2019 4:17 PM

One month's SD only after a year of tenancy? Holy cow! And I was annoyed that PA would only let me keep one YEAR'S worth of SD after a year of tenancy.


NYS new law (by myob [GA]) Posted on: Jul 10, 2019 4:51 PM

Ken NY your post about you can't fight the whole city-- isn't that what would have happened in the general election 2.5 years ago? California and NY would have elected the president-- not the whole country.

My question is: how in god's name did the writers of the constitution know this?

Ny is now allowing illegals to get DV licenses and here is the good part-- in NY if you have a DV lic that's all you need to vote. 46 of our states will not license illegals--BUT NOT NY-- WELCOME ALL.

WE MUST get people out to vote-- this can not end well for us or our families who are here legally. --99.103.xxx.xxx
