Since all the new regulations came in, I don't think that the people who don't belong to the owner organizations like SPONY, CHIP and RSA know what to do," worried Edward Korman, an owner who is vice president of Small Property Owners of New York
(SPONY), mentioning the Community Housing Improvement Program (CHIP) that works with primarily middle-market ownership, and the Rent Stabilization Association (RSA), which has 25,000 owners from large to small under its wing.
Concerned about the numerous details of the Federal, state and city requirements particularly those that have only draft regulations circulating but must be implemented soon, CHIP, the Associated Builders and Owners (ABO), and the Small Property Owners of New York
(SPONY) have all scheduled seminars on the lead paint laws.
Working with the Real Estate Board of New York, Community Housing Improvement Program, Small Property Owners of New York
, Bronx Realty Advisory Board, Black and Latino Property Owners, the New York Building Congress and other industry groups, we forced New York's legislators, business leaders and residents to reassess the impact of over 50 years of regulation.
In response, RSA has elicited the support of the Community Housing Improvement Program (CHIP), Small Property Owners of New York
(SPONY), the Council of New York Cooperatives (CNYC) and several key real estate professionals, including Michael Kerr of M&R Management, Rubin Pikus of Milbrook Properties, and Andrew Hoffman of Clarendon Management Corp.
The Small Property Owners of New York
, the Black and Latino Property Owners Coalition and other property owners groups are also supporting the actions.
