Wednesday night the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) joined with housing advocacy group NIDC, Councilman Mark Gjonaj, and Assemblywoman Nathalia Fernandez to present a Homeowner and Landlord Resource Fair at Maestros.

Some of the people going to the various information tables that were set up by the different city agencies.

Seven New York City agencies were on hand that included HPD, the NYC Commission on Human Rights, Department of Buildings, Department of Sanitation, Department of Environmental Protection, Department of Finance, Center for the NYC Neighbourhoods,  tenant advocacy group NIDC, along with Councilman Gjonaj and Assemblywoman Fernandez. 

Assemblywoman Fernandez spoke on some of the new legislation passed in Albany.

Why a homeowner received a violation from the Sanitation Department, and what to do next. Additions to homes and how to do the job done so the city would not come and give the homeowner a violation. Why is the homeowner’s water bill so large were just a few of the questions of the city agencies. There was also information to renters on what to watch out for when looking for an apartment, and who may qualify for a rent freeze for seniors and low income renters.
