Proposed COMMERCIAL Rental Law in November 2019

READ ARTICLE: NYC Council Introduces Intro 1796 for Commercial Rent Control

NEW YORK CITY – New York City Council has unveiled a rent control plan that will implement commercial rent stabilization citywide. Under the legislation called Intro 1796, a City Council-appointed board will set annual lease increases on retail, professional service, and manufacturing storefront space instead of landlords.


Passed & Implemented - New Rental Law in November 2019

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today signed legislation (S.2576/A.1646) prohibiting landlords from collecting rent or maintaining a nonpayment eviction proceeding during the period for which there is no valid certificate of occupancy. This law also prohibits tenants and owners from living in a residence that does not have a valid certificate of occupancy. The law would expand existing laws to cover cities with a population of less than 325,000 people. The law goes into effect immediately.

Welcome to Freedom First REIA!

Whether you are a novice or a seasoned investor, we strive to provide a forum that will lead to your personal and financial growth. Real estate is one of the most powerful tools to create and accumulate wealth. It is not a get rich quick scheme. Successful investors know that success can not happen alone. The key to true success is the right combination of networking, knowledge and action. This is what Freedom First fosters.

Our mission is to help others truly become free in many facets of their life and then create wealth through various real estate investment strategies. While real estate will be the prime avenue it certainly will not be the only one. Our REIA’s pure focus is to empower those looking for true freedom.

Freedom to:

  • Live the life you only dreamed of
  • Provide for those you care about, create “Generational Wealth”
  • Be able to give back in the way that you want to
  • Have the time, money and resources to live a successful life – as you define it
  • Discover your passion
  • Create a real estate business that helps all you come in contact with
  • Evaluate and exercise your options based on a decision of choice

Freedom From:

  • Financial dependence
  • The fear of not being able to provide for you, your family and their futures
  • Negative mindset, and stress caused by a lack of control over your own destiny
  • The need to exchange time for money
  • Feeling helpless, powerless and being “Just Over Broke”
