"Good Cause" Eviction Bill Would Undermine Affordable Housing

The Building & Realty Institute of Westchester and the Mid-Hudson Region

It is inconceivable that the sponsors of the so-called "Good Cause" eviction bill would look at the situation in Westchester County – where the recent housing needs assessment conducted by the County Planning Department found that we needed to build or create 12,000 additional units of affordable housing to meet our needs, and that  81% of our housing stock was built before 1979, and 30% was built before 1940—and would intentionally seek to make these problems worse by removing the remaining incentives for renovation investments, thereby increasing the number of apartments that are not habitable and must remain vacant.  But that is what this bill would lead to.

Join the Apartment Owners Advisory Council (AOAC), the Building and Realty Institute of Westchester County and the Mid-Hudson Region (BRI), the Under One Roof Coalition, REBNY, RSA, CHIP, and others in helping to spread the word about this too-broad and harmful legislation.

Email your State Senator and explain why you oppose this bill.
