Loft Law

The New York City Loft Law affects certain buildings that have residential use in units that do not have a residential certificate of occupancy and meet other specific requirements.  The New York City Loft Board governs the conversion of these Interim Multiple Dwellings (IMD) from commercial to residential use.  With over 30 years of experience representing owners, our attorneys will provide legal counsel in navigating this extensive body of law.

Our attorneys represent building owners before the Loft Board, OATH, the Department of Buildings, the Board of Standards and Appeals, Civil and Supreme Court in Loft Law matters such as coverage claims, registration, rent profiteering and illegal subletting, non-primary residence, legalization mediation, the negotiation of surrender, access and relocation agreements, rent regulation/deregulation, and removal from the Loft Board’s jurisdiction.

The Loft Law is likely expanding Spring of 2019 to include a new group of buildings throughout the City qualifying under the Loft Law.  Building owners are encouraged to contact our Loft Law attorneys to learn more about how the Loft Law could affect them.
