Rent Registration Information

State Law requires owners of housing accommodations regulated by NYS Rent Stabilization laws to file an annual rent registration with the NYS Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR) and to provide each tenant in occupancy on April 1 with a copy of the registration which pertains to the tenant’s unit. 

The Annual Registration information must reflect the status of the buildings and apartments on April 1.  Registrations must be submitted by July 31 using the Owner Rent Regulation Application (ORRA) system.
