Epoch Times - Landlords Could Soon be Responsible for Indoor Air Quality
NEW YORK--Two years in the works, a bill to make landlords responsible for the cleanup of indoor asthma triggers such as mold, rats, and cockroaches is close to becoming a law.
If passed, the Asthma-Free Housing Act (City Council Int. 750) would increase the presence of visible mold from a level A violation to a level C violation. It would allow the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) to inspect residences at the request of tenants and issue violations.
