When Church Becomes A Landlord

Q.   My rent-stabilized building was bought by a church. Do stabilization laws still apply?
A.   “The writer’s rent-stabilization rights continue even though the property was purchased by a church,” said David Kaminsky, a Manhattan real estate lawyer. He said the only way a change of ownership could result in the deregulation of an apartment was if the new owner was a federal, state or local government entity.
