EHADP partner Christine Perrucci Smith and counsel Lisa J. Ross gave a presentation to the East End community at the Southampton Business Alliance breakfast meeting on the recent statutory amendments to New York landlord-tenant laws. The presentation addressed how the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act of 2019 is changing various aspects of the landlord-tenant relationship in New York, including such topics as collection of security deposits and advanced rent, new notices addressing late payments and non-renewal of a lease required of the landlord, and the additional delay which will likely be caused during eviction proceedings. The event was well-attended by over 70 members of the community, including real estate brokers, business owners, landlords, and members of the local press.  Thank you to partner Lisa D. Tymann for coordinating the event with the Southampton Business Alliance.
