Do you remember the story we posted about the twice-married woman in New York City who was “adopted” at age 58 by an elderly man she befriended so she could stay in his rent-controlled apartment (where he’d been living for at least 85 years, btw)? Well, as Kathy Fettke reports in a recent episode of Real Estate News for Investors, things just got a lot worse in New York. She says New York landlords are gearing up for a court battle over new statewide rent control rules that will have a dramatic impact on rent-regulated apartments in New York City, as well as non-rent regulated rental units across the state. Landlords are planning to fight back with a lawsuit.
