If you are representing tenants and/or landlords, you need to familiarize yourself with the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act (HSTPA) and emerging legal challenges. Experienced landlord-tenant practitioner Peggy Collen will discuss recent changes in Rent Regulation Laws, the General Obligations Law, and the Real Property Law, as well as new case law developing as a result of the HSTPA.
