DHCR Advisory Solutions
Pre-Purchase Due-Diligence Services
We are excited to bring you updates and information on the services we offer to ensure compliance with New York State housing regulations. Our team is dedicated to providing comprehensive due-diligence services to landlords, property managers, attorneys, and developers.
We want to highlight some of the key services we offer:
  • Pre-acquisition Due-Diligence: If your firm is representing the buyer or seller of a NYC existing multifamily building, STRATCO rent-regulatory experts can deliver a 4-day guaranteed pre-purchase diligence report. This will outline complex rent regulatory guidelines with the legal rent increases, and related data/analysis to make informed business decisions.
  • Annual Rent Registrations: We assist landlords and property managers in registering their rental units with DHCR, ensuring compliance with rent stabilization laws and regulations. For NYS rent-regulated buildings, HCR's Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR) 2023 Annual Rent Registrations period begins on April 1 and ends on July 31, 2023. The annual registrations must reflect the status of the buildings and apartments on April 1, 2023. DHCR has strengthened its filing requirements to meet the provision of the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act of 2019.
  • Rent Overcharge Complaints: We provide guidance and forensic accounting representation for landlords and attorneys in rent overcharge complaints, helping to resolve disputes and ensure compliance with the law.
  • MCI (Major Capital Improvement) and Individual Apartment Improvements Calculations: We assist landlords in obtaining DHCR approval for MCIs and IAIs, helping to ensure that rent increases are lawful and just.
