Managing Rent Regulated Property in a Pandemic: The HSTPA of 2019 One Year Later, Regina Metropolitan and COVID-19

Recorded On 06/25/2020

COURSE DETAILS

The Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act (HSTPA ) of 2019 dramatically changed the landscape for apartment building owners. Numerous provisions of the rent laws and other laws were amended to favor tenants at the expense of building owners. Recently, however, a NYS Court of Appeals ruling in Regina Metropolitan v. DHCR, prohibited the retroactive use of the HSTPA’s rent overcharge provisions. This program will explain the practical implications of Regina Metropolitan to overcharge cases and, potentially, to other types of cases as well.

The COVID-19 crisis continues to raise questions about how owners can collect the rents they need to pay their property taxes and other expenses at a time when non-payment cases cannot be commenced in Housing Court. This program will include up-to-date information on Housing Court, DHCR, and the Governor’s orders regarding evictions and rent collection.
