Steven D. Sidrane is a founding partner in Sidrane, Schwartz-Sidrane, Perinbasekar & Littman, LLP, located in Rockville Centre, N.Y. A full-service law firm practicing landlord-tenant law in New York City, the firm deals in all types of litigation and disputes between landlords and tenants. The practice ranges from administrative law to appeals, including work before the New York State Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR) and its specialized Tenant Protection Unit (TPU), as well as litigation both in the Civil Court of the State of New York, the Supreme Court of the State of New York, and appeals from these courts to the Appellate Term and the Appellate Division. The firm covers the counties of New York, Kings, Queens, Bronx, and Nassau.
With a total of 36 years of experience practicing before the NYS DHCR, the firm has handled hundreds of proceedings before the rent administrators, at the administrative appeal level (PAR), and in Article 78 proceedings.
The firm also performs administrative due diligence, which is essential today prior to purchasing a property. Owners need to know what they're buying, not from the seller, but from what’s on file, with the City and State of New York, to be certain they're getting what they pay for.
