Judge blocks implementation of Kingston rent control

Dec 01, 2022 12:45 am

MidHudson News is reporting Ulster County State Supreme Court Justice David Gandin, November 30, signed an order temporarily blocking implementation of Kingston rent control as adopted by the Kingston Rent Guidelines Board. Genevieve Rand, statewide housing organizer for Citizen Action of New York said her organization is confident the decision will ultimately be upheld in court, but this order “will cause irreversible harm to countless tenants in Kingston.” She said it was “disgusting that the real estate industry funds this campaign to deter tenants from asserting their right to safe, stable housing and other cities from enacting policy to protect that right.” Rand said the justice’s order “means that the renters of Kingston will lose an important step toward housing security that was legally afforded to them. Instead they will struggle with unaffordable rents now and in the future, leading to housing instability and, in some cases, homelessness.” Read the full story at MidHudsonNews [dot] com.
