    Briana Adler, the remaining plaintiff in a proposed Hurricane Sandy-related class action that sought rent reimbursements from landlords of storm-affected properties in New York, has had her complaint dismissed with prejudice, according to state Supreme Court documents filed today. In a decision last month, New York State Supreme Court Judge Shirley Werner Kornreich gave Adler 20 days to file a new class action — limited only to representing the tenants at her 155 East 31st Street building and against landlord Mastic Associates of New York — but nothing came of it.

    Three young Manhattanites have launched a proposed class action on behalf of all New York State tenants who paid rent in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy — when many apartment dwellers were left without electricity, heat, hot water and elevator service — and are allegedly owed refunds.

  • Broker’s fees are increasingly falling back into the hands of renters, according to the Wall Street Journal, with at least three major Manhattan landlords ending their recession policies of picking up the tab out of desperation to fill their empty units. Ogden CAP Properties, which owns Normandie Court on East 95th Street and One Lincoln Plaza on West 64th Street, said it would stop paying the fees, which usually amount to one month’s rent, in those buildings. The rental arm of the Related Companies, which has around 5,000 apartment units in the city, and large apartment owner Pan Am Equities each plan to stop covering broker’s fees at the end of the month in response to better-than-expected vacancy rates and an overall strengthening of the market.
