New York Law Journal: Realty Law Digest

September 3, 2014

In his weekly Realty Law Digest column, Scott Mollen analyzes two notable real estate decisions. In the first, Matter of Russo v. New York City Housing Authority, the court opines that NYC Housing Authority (NYCHA) policies and procedures include a highly unusual requirement that a husband must obtain formal written permission from NYCHA before his wife can move in with him. In the second, Matter of Thompson Corners v. New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the court found that a subsequent owner is not obliged to provide financial assistance for ongoing remedial action at a former hazardous waste storage facility.
