Failure To Provide Heat And/Or Hot Water - Tenant Application For Rent Reduction

In New York City, the Housing Maintenance Code requires that heat must be provided from October 1 through May 31 as follows:

6 A.M. to 10 P.M.:

When the outside temperature is below 55 degrees Fahrenheit, the inside temperature must be at least 68 degrees Fahrenheit.

10 P.M. to 6 A.M.:

When the outside temperature is below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, the inside temperature must be at least 55 degrees Fahrenheit.

For information when heat must be provided outside New York City, please refer to Fact Sheet 15.

State Law requires that hot water be provided 365 days per year, 24 hours a day at a minimum of 120 degrees Fahrenheit at the tap. In New York City, if a tub or shower is equipped with an anti-scald valve that prevents the hot water temperature from exceeding 120 degrees Fahrenheit, the minimum hot water temperature for that tub or shower is 110 degrees Fahrenheit.

TENANT INSTRUCTIONS: Please note: You must attach a report from the appropriate city, municipal or county agency showing a finding of lack of heat and/or hot water.
