Good cause eviction
The passage of Good Cause eviction laws eliminate a property owner or operator’s right to serve a non-renewal notice on a resident at the end of the lease term. It would require an owner to "show cause" and obtain a court order to terminate a lease.
NYS Legislature is considering enacting Good Cause Eviction statewide. A couple local governments have enacted this regulation in their cities already (Albany, Ithaca, Hudson, & Newburgh).
