New Yorkers awoke yesterday to the unexpected and delightful news that state regulators had banned broker fees for renters.

The fees, as high 15% of the annual lease, are major obstacles to moving.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez posted a celebratory tweet, saying that the move, “would save working people thousands of dollars per move.”

Lower down in its article, the Times noted that brokers can still collect a fee if its “paid by the landlord.”

Landlords didn’t wait around.

By the end of the day I noticed four online properties in Tribeca, one of the city’s hottest neighborhoods, had raised prices between 4.9% and 8%.

The Web sites also added tags saying: NO FEE.

The day before those properties had fees attached.

Of course, unlike one-time brokers fees, those prices re-occur every month.
