James Prendamano, CEO of Casandra Properties discussed the analysis by the home search platform Localize.city with Tracey Porpora from the Staten Island Advance. According to the study Staten Island had 2,327 heat-related 311 complaints from renters last year. These complaints are among a total of 221,858 complaints from New Yorkers.
James was quoted saying “Last year Staten Island registered only 1% of the city-wide complaints. Unfortunately, we are predicting these types of complaints to increase as the new rent laws have significantly impacted investors motivation to invest in this type of infrastructure and upgrades for their buildings overall.”
