EHADP Partner Christine Perrucci Smith participated as a panelist at a Press Sessions event hosted by The Press News Group at Rowdy Hall in East Hampton.  The panel discussed the impacts that the new N.Y. State landlord-tenant laws are having on the local rental market and also explored the pros and cons of online competitors, such as Airbnb.   Christine discussed the impact that the laws are having on landlords, including their willingness to engage in the rental market in light of the new regulations.  She also explained the new, rather strict statutory requirements governing tenant’s rights to inspections and the return of the security deposit.  The event was well attended by over 60 members of the community, including fellow attorneys, brokers, business owners, and landlords.  The audience was engaged and actively participated with the panelists in discussing these recent changes in the local rental market
