The Loft Law

The Loft Law, like all rent regulation laws, is a New York State law, Article 7-C of the NYS Multiple Dwelling Law. (But it only to apply to cities of a million or more residents, meaning New York City.)

Here is the text of the Loft Law Clean-up Bill signed into law on January 31, 2013. See sections 21-24.

The Loft Board Rules

The Loft Law is implemented and enforced by a New York City agency called the Loft Board. Its rules (aka regulations) are Title 29 of the Rules of the City of New York.
