October 25, 2018 - Michelle Itkowitz to Speak on a Panel at the LandlordsNY Symposium

On October 25th 2018, Michelle Itkowitz is scheduled to speak on a panel at the LandlordsNY Symposium. The panel will be about how it takes a village to properly manage a building, especially in times of crisis. Michelle will explain how landlord-and-tenant lawyers should only be a small part of a larger team when it comes to dealing with illegal Airbnb, non-primary residence, or hoarders. Landlords could save themselves a lot in legal fees and get better results in these matters if they involve, at the outset, other expert vendors such as investigators and consultants, who understand and follow the laws and the rules of ethics when it comes to tenants, the City, and other tenants of the building. Together, this panel will be discussing how mutually beneficial solutions for both landlords and tenants are achieved.
