The things that tenants are required to provide varies all around New York City, depending on factors such as the type of building, whether there is an elevator, if it is rent stabilized, etc. Yet there are still certain things that are a must by law, and you might be surprised to learn what isn't.
Mirador C.O.O. Melissa Noblit recently gave Brick Underground the details of what some of those requirements are and are not. Legally speaking, tenants don't have to provide a refrigerator and stove, and though that case is usually rare, you should double-check your lease. “In some units, the refrigerator is very small, or the stove might be more of a cooktop or two burner as opposed to a full-size stove, so there is some latitude as to what constitutes a refrigerator or cooking device,” says Melissa.
