Office Hours with Sam Himmelstein
Renting in New York City usually comes with some kind of headache—a broken elevator, a rent increase, leaks, mold, the list goes on. In the latest episode of the Brick Underground podcast, senior writer Emily Myers sits down with tenant attorney Sam Himmelstein, a partner at Himmelstein McConnell Gribben & Joseph and a longtime sponsor of the site, for the first Brick Underground Office Hours. This is a live forum for your questions.
Some of the questions addressed during the event include: Can I be charged fees for late rent payments if it isn't in the lease? What are a landlords' obligations for cleaning common areas? Can a landlord increase my rent in retaliation if I complain about conditions? How do I handle mold? Another important issue: How do you check if your apartment is rent-stabilized? You can see the video on YouTube or catch the conversation on the podcast.
Tenant attorney Sam Himmelstein also writes Brick Underground's popular Ask a Renter's Rights Lawyer column. The Brick Underground podcast explores every aspect of buying, selling, and renting in NYC so you can better navigate the market, find a deal, make sense of the legal jargon, and stay one step ahead of the competition.
