Welcome to the NYC Loft Tenants web site.
We will bring you important news and information about the New York City Loft Law and how it helps tenants.
The new Loft Law passed in June 2010 by the New York State Legislature was designed to provide tenants of loft buildings some rent security and a path to legalization of their spaces. The process required to get this legal and rent-protected status is complicated and the regulations governing that process took until September 2013 to complete.
While it is intended to help as many loft tenants as possible, the Loft Law is an imperfect piece of legislation, and tenants need to know more about the process in order to decide whether coverage is right for them.
Our goal is to help artists and live/work residents, and people who love living in converted spaces, to stay in them. We designed this site to help you start learning about the Loft Law.
