In the aftermath of Tuesday’s announcement from the Senate and Assembly that the most sweeping expansion of tenant rights would soon be on Gov. Cuomo’s desk, brokers rushed to get leases signed for their panicked clients before the laws go into effect. Bohemia Realty Group’s co-founder Sarah Saltzberg explains why this package of legislation could be like a “bomb exploding” in the industry.

Editor’s Note: This was filmed on Thursday, one day before Cuomo signed the bill. Read the full story on the bill’s passage here.
