Daniel M. Bernstein, member with Rosenberg & Estis, P.C. and co-chair of the NYC Bar Association Committee on Housing & Urban Development, will oversee a CLE program on the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act of 2019 on Thursday, October 31st from 9 am – 12:15 pm. He will co-host the program with Jennifer Kubicki, an attorney with the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development.

The discussion will provide real estate stakeholders and attorneys up-to-date information and practice pointers about the generational changes to NYS housing laws and how it is affecting owners and tenants, borrowers and lenders, courts and government since its enactment in June of 2019. New York State Senator Zellnor Y. Myrie and RuthAnne Visnauskas, the Commissioner and CEO of New York State’s Division of Housing and Community Renewal, will deliver the keynote. Luise A. Barrack, Managing Member of Rosenberg & Estis, P.C., will appear as a panelist speaking on Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act’s impact on landlords and tenants.

“The impacts of this far-reaching and often confusing act are extraordinary,” said Daniel M. Bernstein, member, Rosenberg & Estis. “Despite the focus on this issue during the past several months, the new rent laws require more explanation and clarification, including from the authors of the legislation, attorneys addressing its implementation and from real estate stakeholders affected by it.”
