    Upper West Side-based investment firm Castellan Real Estate Partners is expected to reach a settlement with the state over a probe into whether the firm demanded to see Spanish-speaking tenants’ passports, proof of citizenship and pay stubs as a condition of their tenancy. The firm later evicted tenants who would not comply with their demands, which are prohibited by state law.
