Yesterday, a group of local politicians and tenant groups got together for a press conference to announce a new bit of legislation being pursued, an extension of the somewhat controversial Tenant Protection Act passed by the State Assembly last spring. Per the press release, the new legislation would "require landlords to pay attorney’s fees and/or expenses incurred by tenants wrongly accused of breaking rent-stabilization regulations. In cases where a landlord is found to have knowingly served a notice containing facts or allegations that are not true, the landlord shall be liable for three times the tenant's legal fees." Living With Legends was at the presser and has more details. [CurbedWire Inbox]
