Our Experienced Loft Law Division Is Ready To Help

In May 2020, the owner of a 1982 Loft Law building sought the expertise of Senior Partner David R. Brody of Borah, Goldstein, Altschuler, Nahins & Goidel, P.C. and Borah Goldstein’s Loft Division for representation in the Building’s removal from the Loft Board’s jurisdiction. The owner obtained a residential certificate of occupancy in 2010, and its former counsel applied for removal from the Loft Board’s jurisdiction in 2011. However, despite former counsel’s efforts, the removal case did not progress, and by 2020, the removal application had been stalled for years.

Borah Goldstein’s Loft Division discussed the application with Loft Board’s staff, which requested additional information. The Loft Division’s investigation began by combing through the voluminous files at the Loft Board, conducting outreach to prior tenants from the 1980’s and obtaining relevant documents from other sources. After multiple submissions to the Loft Board, the Loft Board finally issued the exit order. The expertise of and relentless effort by Borah Goldstein’s Loft Division made the difference and enabled the owner to complete the Loft Law process. The building is no longer under the jurisdiction of the New York City Loft Board.
