Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Subchapter 2 of chapter 2 of title 27 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 27-2009.3 to read as follows:

§ 27-2009.3 Required lease disclosures. The owner of a multiple dwelling shall include as an addendum to any lease, including any renewal lease, offered to tenants or prospective tenants of such multiple dwelling, the following information conspicuously set forth therein, the form, content and languages of which shall be determined by the commissioner of housing preservation and development pursuant to rules, which shall list certain statutory rights under the real property law that cannot be waived, including that any agreement by a lessee or tenant of a dwelling waiving or modifying his rights as set forth in section 235-B of the real property law shall be void as contrary to public policy. 

§2. This local law takes effect 120 days after it becomes law, except that the commissioner of housing preservation and development may take such measures as are necessary for the implementation of this local law, including the promulgation of rules, before such date.
