Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. Accelerates the Issuance of a Certificate of No Harassment During COVID-19
Since the Certificate of No Harassment Unit of the Housing Preservation and Development of the City of New York was inundated with hundreds of thousands owners’ applications for Certificates of No Harassment pre-pandemic, one can only imagine what the grinding halt of the COVID-19 lockdown meant for the agency and for owners waiting for a determination on applications pending prior to the shutdown. It meant that these owners’ construction projects would remain at a standstill the entire time that the agency was at a standstill due to lockdown. While most employers and institutions easily implemented a work from home initiative, city agencies were not equipped for such a seamless transition. It immediately became clear to Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. that the firm’s clients needed Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. to establish a line of communication with the agency despite being repeatedly advised that the offices were closed until further notice. Once a line of communication was established, the firm used it wisely and worked diligently to keep its clients’ applications at the forefront of the agency’s piles of applications. Thereby, a Certificate of No Harassment was issued for the firm’s client at a time when the agency was reportedly closed due to COVID-19.
Carolyn Z. Rualo of Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. represented the landlord in this matter.
