Preferential Rents: Benefit or Threat? // Views from the Northwest Bronx

by UNHP
The use of preferential rents—negotiated rents that are less than the legal rent— has become more prominent recently as an issue for tenants, in the news and in Bronx set-up sheets for multifamily building sales. In this piece, UNHP aims to discuss how preferential rents, once considered a benefit to tenants, could undermine the financial stability of multifamily buildings and its lenders as well as threaten the tenancy of Bronx residents - 70 percent of whom are already vulnerable to displacement.

“UNHP has emerged as a thought leader on multi-family housing distress-a key issue facing all boroughs of New York City.”
