: From the New York Law Journal, Tuesday, July 6th:

: The Appellate Term, 2nd & 11th Departments (covering Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island), rejected lower court holdings that a three-day rent demand from a lawyer, which violates the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), is not a valid predicate notice under New York State's Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law (RPAPL).

There are also summaries of two Overcharge decisions: one about first dereg rent and the other about WHEN the clock starts on an O/C case due to failure to file DHCR registrations. Decisions start on Page 29, column 1 per the LJX version of the article.

Waiting for the analysis on Tenant.Net....
