CNYC 43rd Annual Housing Conference 2023

November 12, 2023
Zoom Webinar

Herrick partners Bruce A. Cholst and Andrew B. Freedland will speak on separate panels at the Council of New York Cooperatives & Condominiums 43rd Annual Housing Conference.

CNYC’s 43rd Annual Housing Conference offers registrants 40 different classes for a day of learning for board members, committee members, prospective board members of housing cooperatives and condominiums and the professionals who work with them.

Herrick Panels:


Boards’ power to impose rules on their community residents is the quintessential feature of cooperative and condominium living. Unfortunately, the exercise of that power often results in acrimony and costly litigation. Attorney Bruce Cholst will discuss strategies for enforcing the rules while minimizing tension and the prospect of litigation. If litigation is unavoidable, he will also explore boards’ powers and legal remedies in compelling compliance with their regulations.


Many cooperatives periodically review their sublet, admissions and "guest" policies to ensure a consistently balanced approach to the changing needs of the building and its shareholders and to consider the effect of new laws on the process. Attorney Andrew Freedland will examine subletting both from the point of view of the board of directors and that of shareholders wishing to sublet. He will help participants consider procedures for reviewing sublet candidates and sublet fees and will discuss current law and possible board policies with respect to occupancy by 'guests' and 'roommates'.  The class will also explore restrictions and conditions that boards might consider imposing in sublet situations, including short term sublets, which are now the subject of new NYC rules.
