Office of Rent Administration

Important Notice

Village of Ossining board of trustees voted to adopt the NY State Emergency Tenant Protection Act. Click here for more information.

Updates

On November 13, 2018 the Westchester County Rent Guidelines Board voted to establish rent increase guideline rates that are specific for leases entered into in the Village of Ossining.
One year renewal lease - 0% increase
Two-year renewal lease- 1% increase or .8% increase (where the tenant pays for Heat and/or Hot Water)
Fair Market Rent Guideline- a look back period to challenge rent increases taken within six months prior to September 5, 2018: increases of no more than 4% for tenants with leases and increases of no more than 2% for tenants without written leases.

NOTE - Owners must serve each rent stabilized tenant with an Initial Apartment Registration form and tenants will have 90 days from the date of service to challenge the rent being registered through a Fair Market Rent Appeal(FMRA) on a DHCR application form. Tenants can still file the FMRA even if the registration is not served.

On October 25, 2018 the Office of Rent Administration sent a mailing to the owners of buildings in Ossining that the municipality had identified as being subject to the Emergency Tenant Protection Act. The mailing included a letter providing an overview  of the requirements for participating in the ETPA and an Initial Registration packet. Reference material and contact information for assistance was also provided.
