Advocating New York Tenant Rights in Building Conversions
When a developer, building owner or management company changes the use of a rental building to a co-op or condo, a conversion occurs. For this to happen legally, certain approvals and permits must be acquired from government agencies.
Tenant rights must always be observed in the case of conversions. If your building is being converted, it is important to seek the advice of an experienced New York conversion attorney who can work in your interest.
The Manhattan law firm of Himmelstein, McConnell, Gribben, Donoghue & Joseph LLP is a leader in defending tenant rights in co-op and condo conversions. For more information, call us at 646-666-8496.
