Best NYC Landlords in Q1 2023

April 1, 2023 | the RENT BETTA team, a website offering no fee apartments directly from owners without brokers or broker fees, announces the Best Landlords in NYC for Q1 2023.

NYC has its share of problem buildings where conditions have been allowed to deteriorate leading to difficult living conditions, but there are also many property managers who are doing a great job.

The ranking is generated by the largest buildings in NYC with zero open violations, which are housing complaints filed with the Department of Housing and Preservation Development.

Landlords and property managers who make the top 10 list have flawless properties without a single housing violation, despite the large size of their developments.
