From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Article 7-C of the New York Multiple Dwelling Law, commonly known as the 1982 Loft Law, was designed to protect the residential tenants of certain former commercial buildings in New York City from substandard conditions, eviction, and unfair rent increases.[1] The law affected buildings it defined as Interim Multiple Dwellings (IMDs), commercial or manufacturing loft buildings that had at least three units occupied by residents during the period of April 1, 1980 through December 1, 1981.[2] It required landlords to bring converted residences up to code, and prevented them from charging tenants for improvements until the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy.[3]

The 1982 Loft Law should not be confused with rent control legislation, which limits the ability of landlords to increase the rent of certain long-term tenants.
