Areas of Practice Rent Regulation & Administrative Law, Litigation (Real Estate), Landlord Tenant Law, Appellate Law, Eminent Domain

Jeffrey Turkel joined Rosenberg & Estis in 1983 and is a member with the firm’s Administrative Law Department. Mr. Turkel represents clients in all phases of litigation and appellate practice in the New York State courts and has successfully represented hundreds of owners in proceedings before the New York State Division of Housing and Community Renewal, the agency that administers rent stabilization and rent control. Mr. Turkel is frequently called upon by such groups as RSA, CHIP and REBNY to represent the real estate industry in litigation and appeals affecting the industry as a whole.

Over the past three decades, Mr. Turkel has won many important and ground-breaking appeals in the areas of real estate, rent regulation, landlord-tenant, condemnation, and constitutional law, including 60 East 12th Street Tenants’ Ass’n v New York State Div. of Hous. & Community Renewal, Pultz v Economakis, Riverside Syndicate v Munroe, KSLM-Columbus Apts., Inc. v New York State Div. of Hous. & Community Renewal, 520 East 81st Street Assoc. v State of New York, Olsen v Stellar 110 West, LLC, 925 D Realty LLC v New York State Div. of Hous. & Community Renewal, and Georgia Properties v. Dalsimer.

Mr. Turkel recently won a major victory for the real estate industry in the New York State Court of Appeals in Altman v 285 West Fourth LLC. The landmark decision, issued on April 26, 2018, prevents the restabilization of tens of thousands of New York City apartments that had become lawfully deregulated between 1997 and 2011. As a result of Mr. Turkel’s argument, the Court of Appeals unanimously reversed the order of the Appellate Division, First Department, and declared the apartment in question, and by extension, all similarly situated apartments, to be exempt from rent stabilization. The Court of Appeals also vacated a $165,000 overcharge award that had been granted to the tenant.

Since 1997, Mr. Turkel has co-authored the Rent Regulation column in the New York Law Journal. He is a frequent media source on rent regulatory matters and has been published extensively in such journals as The New York Real Estate Law Reporter, of which he is on the Board of Advisors, and Environmental Law in New York.
