New Chapter Amendments and Effective Dates for NYS Fair Housing Laws

On December 21, 2021, Governor Kathy Hochul signed a series of new fair housing bills into law. NYSAR is proud to have worked with state lawmakers over the last two years to strengthen fair housing laws in New York State and is committed to educating REALTORS® about these new laws and regulations. In Governor Hochul’s approval messages for several of these fair housing laws, the governor included a series of technical amendments, or chapter amendments, to amend certain provisions and effective dates of the laws, which the Legislature has agreed to pass early this year. Click here a description of the new fair housing laws along with the proposed chapter amendments where applicable. NYSAR will continue to post updates when they occur.
