Episode 039 – Undermined Rental Property Rights Erodes Rental Housing – No One Wins
In June of 2019 the NY State Legislature passed the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act of 2019 (HSTPA). Now 2.5 years later, while the constitutional challenge to HSTPA makes it way through the courts, there exists another attempt by the Legislature to enact a “Good Cause Eviction” Bill that will further encroach on the rights or property owners.
My Co-Host Nativ Winiarsky and guests Craig Gambardella and Jim Burling, all attorneys, and I get into the weeds about the future of these draconian laws and how they will negatively impact not just property owners but the millions of people who choose to rent instead of own.

Episode 034 – Eviction Moratorium – What Owners, Tenants and You Need to Know Right Now
The narrative around an Eviction Moratorium communicates a false positive that amounts to no more than a strategy to boost political popularity while failing to explain or plan for what happens in the future. The accumulation of an obligation with no relief or assistance is a plan to fail all the stakeholders of rental housing. Especially when the debits far exceed the credits.
Who are the stakeholders? Far more reaching than just landlords and tenants.
Joanna Wong, my Co-Host on this episode of Realty Speak, and I are joined by Attorneys Nativ Winiarsky, Jim Marino and Lisa Faham-Selzer of Kucker Marino Winiarsky & Bittens and they expertly lead us to an understanding of what is really happening here.
Tenant, landlord or otherwise; this is a must listen that will hopefully get you talking - to each other.
