If you live in a New York apartment, there’s a good chance you have been bothered by one of two things — noise or smell. Either one of these two can wreak havoc on your life. Out in Westchester, a board and its property manager have been dealing with this issue at their 350-unit building. And for them, it’s even more complicated because the noise is caused by a young child with serious developmental problems. On today’s episode of Legal Talk, attorneys Ken Jacobs of Spolzino, Smith, Buss & Jacobs, and John LaGumina of The LaGumina Law Firm join Habitat Publisher & Editor-in-Chief Carol J. Ott to help the board figure out what steps it should take.
