- On December 8, 2022, The New York City Loft Board held a hearing on proposed changes to the Loft Board Rules and Regulations. Senior Partner David R. Brody submitted comments on the proposed rules. The comments focus on the proposed changes to the legalization process which will effectively lengthen the legalization process and the proposed changes to the regulations which add the term “Responsible Party” as a party somehow different from “owner” and landlord in the Loft Board regulations. The proposed regulations appear to permit a “Responsible Party” to file legalization plans although the City Building Code does not. The full text of the comments can be found here.
