Online Portal – New and Improved
(Q1) Why should I register instead of using the front page to pay my bills?
(A1) The advantage of registering a property under your account allows you to request exemptions, update the billing address, manage multiple properties, and receive email notifications about your property. (Q2) Where can I find my APN or Statement number?
(A2) You can find this information on the top right of your bill. (Q3)I forgot my username and/or password, how can I retrieve it?
(A3)The User ID is your registered email ID and you can refer to the registration activation email sent during sign-up. To retrieve your password, click the “Home” tab on the Customer Portal. Under “Sign In”, you can click “Forgot Password” to reset your password. (Q4) I need additional help. How can I contact you?

(Q1) How do I receive my Rent Stabilization Ordinance (RSO) Certificate?

You can find these options under the ‘RSO Certificate’ heading on the left side of the account webpage. (Q2)I need help registering an account, filing a Temporary Exemption, making a payment as a Registered User, making a payment using Fast Pay, and/or updating my Billing Address. Where can I find instructions?

A letter will be sent once a determination has been made. (Q4)How do I create an account for my Agent or Management Company?
(A4)Request that your Agent or Management Company register a new account to their email. You can then share your properties with them through ‘Manage User.’ For instructions on how to share your properties, visit this link to the ‘Registering an Account’ YouTube tutorial video: https://youtu.be/76N53LthrkE?t=246. (Q5)How do I update my Billing Address?
(A5)On the homepage of your account, click ‘View/Edit Billing’ Address. A new page will load where you can click ‘Edit’ next to the Billing Address. Clicking ‘Edit’ will allow you to update your Billing address, phone number, and email (this will not change your registered email). (Q6)How do I change the registered email on my Customer Portal account?
(A6)You are unable to change the registered email on your account. However, you can register a new account with your preferred email. If you have multiple properties to add to your new account, you can share them from your old account through ‘Manage User’. If you use this feature, there is no need to add them one-by-one. For instructions on how to share your properties, visit this link to the ‘Registering an Account’ YouTube tutorial video: https://youtu.be/76N53LthrkE?t=246 (Q7)I received a bill in the mail, but am unable to see the fees due on my account, how can I view them?
