New York City Enacts Protection for Freelance Workers, Effective 5/ 15/2017
A single person or an entity with only one person, engaged as an independent contractor by companies in New York City for work worth more than $800 (including multiple small projects within a 120 day period), is entitled to a written Freelance Contract that provides timely and full wage payment rights, prohibits retaliation if they exercise their rights, and provides penalties against companies for non-compliance.

A freelance worker can file a complaint with the Department of Consumer Affairs’s (DCA) Office of Labor Policy & Standards. DCA will notify you if a complaint is filed against you. You must respond to the notice of complaint in writing within 20 days. If you do not respond and if the freelance worker files a civil action in court, the judge will presume that you committed the violations. If you have questions, email freelancer@dca.nyc.gov.

A freelance worker can file a civil action in court for violations of the law. If a court finds that you violated the law, you can be liable for damages-double damages for late payment or nonpayment; additional damages for failure to provide a written contract or retaliation-plus attorneys’ fees and costs.

Most successful franchise systems have great locations. For these franchisors, the investment of time and energy for site selection is significant and retaining those sites is very important. The most popular method of providing a franchisor control over a location is by obtaining the landlord’s written agreement to certain key lease provisions. Franchisors can present this form to its franchisees as the “standard” form of lease rider for retail space. The franchisee, in turn, will seek to cause the landlord to incorporate these terms into the lease agreement. This form contains the most critical and customary clauses to include in a lease agreement to achieve the franchisor’s goal of controlling favorable real estate.

Short-term rentals are common (and perhaps inescapable) in a city like New York and other popular destinations, despite laws that prohibit the rental of an apartment in a Multiple Dwelling for less than 30 consecutive days. Recently, however there’s been a dramatic upsurge in such rentals, thanks to vacation rental apps that have made the transactions simpler and more attractive for tenants and travelers. How much of a problem is it and how should it be addressed?

Vacation rental apps provide an online marketplace that connects people with apartments to rent with people who need a place to stay. There are, of course, many proponents of this business model. After all, these types of services have been used for generations to aid travelers of modest means. And what apartment owner or tenant would not jump at the opportunity to earn a few extra dollars? Especially, in New York City where it’s more lucrative. Besides, what’s the harm?

In fact, quite a few parties might be harmed – and not just those directly involved. Certainly, owners and building management are affected by violations of the law. There is, for instance, the cost of fines and lawsuits brought by these transient renters or by parties who suffer damage. Meanwhile, from a government viewpoint, such transactions may ignore, not only zoning laws but numerous fire, safety, and hazard prevention laws. In addition, it is likely that the income earned by the tenant/lessor will never be reported for tax purposes. In the long run, these issues can affect many, if not all, services provided by the government to its citizens.

Frequently, however, the impact of the trend is most keenly felt by neighbors who live in these buildings. Recent news reports have been full of tenant complaints about excessive noise, damage and general offensiveness on the part of vacationers on short term stays. Reports of greater threats and dangers are not uncommon. And even when it poses no immediate danger, the presence of transients can be disturbing. Tenants may rightfully feel that the changing stream of residents across the hall violates their right to the quiet enjoyment of their own premises. Who wants to live in a hotel without a hotel’s security?

With the need to enforce the ban against such rentals pitted against the realities of the marketplace, it often falls to the owner or management of the building to discourage tenants from violating the law. Including a paragraph in lease agreements that specifically prohibits these types of short-term rentals could go very far in deterring them, especially if the penalty for violation results in financial damages or even eviction. We have revised the following forms to include a new paragraph Short Term Rentals Prohibited.

Intelligent Mail Package Barcodes for Privately Printed Forms or Labels

Effective May 31, 2015, the USPS requires that all Certified Mail forms and labels must contain an additional USPS-developed barcode under the address on the front of the Return Receipt Card. This will enable tracking the Return Receipt Post Card back to the original sender. This requirement will affect PS Form 3800 (Certified Mail Receipt) and PS Form 3811 (Domestic Mail Receipt forms).

 

On June 2, 2015, The USPS granted a 90 day extension of this requirement. During that time, any user of our current forms 3086, 3086BCN and 3087 that include USPS forms 3800 and 3811 will be permitted to continue to use those forms, as long as they are accompanied by the attached letter from the USPS (downloadable here). At the end of that time (September 2, 2015), all mailings will be required to comply with the new barcode specifications.

We are revising our software and forms and expect to have them available long before that date.

New York Residential Lease Forms

Compliance with New Sprinkler System Notification Requirements, Effective December 3, 2014

We will be revising all of our leases to comply with Chapter 202 of the 2014 Session Laws of New York. The legislation requires conspicuous notification in residential leases regarding the existence or non-existence of a sprinkler system in leased premises and, if a sprinkler system exists in the residence, common areas or both, the last date of maintenance and inspection. The law is broad and sweeping applying to every residential house, apartment, coop and condo lease and sublease. The December 3, 2014 effective date leaves landlords only one month to replace their leases or to create riders for noncompliant leases.

We will add the Sprinkler System Statement within the body of the form just prior to the signature sections. Look for 12-15 dates. The forms to be revised are Cat. Nos.:

48, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 86, 101, 102, 186, 193, 195, 202, 303, 313, 327, *330, *330CTY, 495

You can use leases with dates earlier than 12-15 until December 2, 2014. We will begin to upload revised forms with 12-15 dates on or about November 1, 1014.

To utilize lease forms with earlier dates, we will add a new form, Sprinkler Statement Rider, Long Form, 12-14 (Cat. Nos. 329 online and T329 in paper). Use this form after December 2, 2014 when you execute new leases for New York residences without sprinkler system statements.

*330 (RTP-8) and 330CTY (RTP-* ETPA) Renewal Leases were revised by the DHCR with a 9-14 date.

Revised New York Residential Lease Forms

Brooklyn, NY – October 2, 2014 – BlumbergExcelsior, Inc. announced that the company will be revising all of its New York residential leases to comply with Chapter 202 of the 2014 Session Laws of New York. The legislation requires conspicuous notification in residential leases regarding the existence or non-existence of a sprinkler system in leased premises and, if a sprinkler system exists, the last date of maintenance and inspection. The law is broad and sweeping applying to every residential house, apartment, coop and condo lease and sublease. The December 3, 2014 effective date leaves landlords only two months to replace their leases or to create riders for noncompliant leases.

In announcing the new forms, Bob Blumberg, President and CEO, said, “Our legal team has already begun to update Blumberg’s twenty four paper and online New York lease forms. We will reprint all paper lease and sublease forms with a sprinkler system statement. We will also revise our online forms that are for use in New York exclusively with a sprinkler statement. Online forms for multiple jurisdictions will include a short form sprinkler statement rider.”

Blumberg will also publish a long form rider in paper (T329) and online (329) to enable landlords to continue to use existing stocks of paper forms.

New Product

BlumbergExcelsior Tell-a-Seal™

Labels Identify Corporate and Notary Seals Brooklyn, NY – August 21, 2014 – BlumbergExcelsior, Inc. introduces TELL-a-SEAL™ labels that fit over the nub on a pocket seal die holder and on the handle for quick identification of the name, state and year on the die of a corporate seal or the name and state of the notary on a notary seal.

In introducing the label, Bob Blumberg, President and CEO, said, “For many years people have been fumbling around in their drawers, on their shelves and desks and in their corporate kits for the appropriate corporate, LLC, architect or engineer seal for the documents to be signed and sealed. Until now, to identify the correct seal you had to strain to read the reverse intaglio image on the die or counter. No more! Now you can find the pocket seal you want in a bunch of seals quickly and without making an impression.”

On occasion, seals have been returned to the wrong corporate kit and subsequently documents have been embossed with the wrong seal delaying the execution of the document while embarrassing the professional supervising the document signing. TELL-a-SEAL labels ensure that pocket seals are returned to the correct kit, avoiding embossing documents with the wrong seal.

Blumberg will include TELL-a-SEAL™ labels with every BlumbergExcelsior pocket seal and corporate/LLC kit free until December 31, 2014. Thereafter there will be a nominal charge.

TELL-a-SEAL™ labels, for which a patent is pending, is an exclusive product of BlumbergExcelsior, the original creator of the corporate kit

New Forms!
A new comprehensive cooperative apartment sublease drafted by prominent real estate attorneys Adam Leitman Bailey, Leonard Ritz and Dov Treiman of Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. It may be the best and most comprehensive cooperative sublease ever written.

The authors are among New York’s most prominent cooperative and landlord and tenant attorneys. Their writing credits include over 90 books reviewing every major cooperative litigation and eviction case. They have participated in thousands of cooperative apartment law suits and evictions. They now provide corporate counsel to hundreds of buildings city-wide.

This new cooperative apartment sublease form accounts for changes and developments in the law during the last three decades. It better protects and secures property owners’ rights and also adapts the lease to current technological changes affecting property owners.

These forms provide lease provisions to facilitate the eviction of tenants who chronically pay rent late, harbor pets illegally or refuse to vacate after the termination of the lease. The form also regulates acceptable noise levels – including musical instruments and sound producing electronic devices; prohibit or regulate smoking; and include measures to decrease the proliferation and spread of mold.

“Blumberg’s legal team in conjunction with prominent real estate attorneys from Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. have put together the most remarkable sublease that will certainly better protect cooperative unit-owning shareholders.”

Comprehensive leases for regulated and unregulated apartments in New York and Nationwide, revised and updated by Adam Leitman Bailey & Dov Treiman

These revised leases reflect the concerns of contemporary real estate practice.
Landlords should protect themselves through modern leases to avoid the consequences of various judicial precedents and legislative laws meant to favor tenant, account for the Internet and technological advances and recognize recent developments in the law. Landlords gain rights, time and money using these revised modern leases.

Maximize Income
Landlords make money by collecting rent from tenants and keeping the cost of maintenance and repairs at a minimum. Landlords are best protected from loss of income when the lease sets forth the result of any and all potential conflicts.

These leases give a precise definition in the event of a tenant’s continuous late payment. The chronic non-payment proceeding is treated as a violation of the tenancy. The landlord can look directly to the lease in addition to the judicial precedents. Also, it permits the landlord to terminate the lease before the end date, maximizing income and use of resources.

In addition, landlords can collect greater revenue for extra services their buildings provide, which would be lost without the provisions of these leases. The leases name all monies coming to the landlord as “additional rent” to secure income owed. This allows the landlord to sue and collect the unpaid money in one court and one proceeding. Fees for services such as parking, health club, cleaning, concierge, or chauffeur, will be collectible as additional rent. If a tenant defaults on paying additional rent, the landlord is given the same remedies as if there was a default in payment of rent. These provisions guarantee income owed, and can avoid lengthy court battles.

Delayed Possession
Generally, landlord’s are liable for the difference between market rent and lease rent when unable to deliver possession of the apartment
