Administrative Law and Rent Regulations

Rosenberg & Estis, P.C., is New York City's premier real estate law firm, and administrative law is an area where we truly excel. Gary Rosenberg and Warren Estis founded R&E in 1975 to help landlords of regulated residential housing in the outer boroughs deal with New York's exceptionally complex rent control and rent stabilization laws.

Administrative law — the interpretation, application and appeal of administrative agency regulations and rulings — is crucial to property owners, developers, and buyers and sellers of real estate in New York, for both residential rental properties and other projects.

The attorneys of R&E know New York law, and we know New York's real estate market. Our unparalleled experience interacting with housing and development agencies in New York allows us to see oncoming issues and prevent them from impacting our clients' projects.

R&E performs due diligence for buyers, sellers and lenders at the onset of real estate projects. We provide reliable counsel on rent control and stabilization issues, raising rents to cover major capital improvements, complying with subsidized housing program rules, working with tax benefit programs and overcoming zoning challenges.

Our knowledge of the intricate details of agency rules and regulations gives our trial lawyers a profound understanding of the issues when challenging adverse decisions, and we have prevailed in numerous appeals for our clients.
