TIME: 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
VENUE: Anderson Kill, 1251 Avenue of the Americas, 42nd Floor, New York, NY
ORGANIZER: Anderson Kill
Local Law 51 of 2015 was signed by Mayor Bill de Blasio in June 2015. The law required the Department for the Aging, in consultation with the Department of Buildings, the Department of Housing Preservation and Development, the Mayor's Office for People with Disabilities, and others, to create a guide for building owners regarding aging in place. We will discuss how this guide impacts a coop or condo building's obligations under the various human rights laws to provide reasonable accommodations to residents.
In addition, we will discuss the various tax incentives which are in place when upgrades to buildings are made for purposes of assisting the disabled or the elderly. The interplay of a board's legal obligation under its governing documents to provide other services to residents that may be required as the residents age in place, and decisions made for other reasons, will also be discussed.
