Likely new real estate rent law shocks New York developers

New rent bills have real estate magnates in shock. Many New York real estate investors aren't exactly enamoured with new bills that would strengthen tenants' rights and protections. Developers of some of the most well-known and easily identified buildings in New York City -- like the World Trade Center and 3 Times Square -- have made efforts to have the bills blocked. They have asked Gov. Andrew Cuomo to help them, but Cuomo said developers need to enlist the aid of their legislators to help thwart the bills.

Are you an heir-at-law? What are your rights?

After a loved one dies, the long process of probate begins. If your loved one did not leave a will, which is known as dying intestate, you and others may be wondering how to divide the assets in the estate. On the other hand, perhaps your loved one left a will that has created confusion by omitting names of those who were close to the deceased. How does the law deal with these matters?

Important facts about probate litigation

Contesting a loved one's will is never an easy prospect. Probate litigation is difficult for everyone involved and before questioning a will, there are some things of which New York residents should be aware. Firstly, people need to be aware that being left out of a will happens to many people and there is usually a good explanation, but many cases also end up in court, so it's important to be prepared. Calling a lawyer may be the first step to take.
