    Professor David Reiss, an expert in Real Estate Finance and Consumer Finance Law and founding director of the Law School’s Community Development Clinic, has been appointed Chair of the New York City Rent Guidelines Board by Mayor Bill de Blasio. He will lead the nine-member board, which is mandated to establish rent adjustments for the approximately 1 million dwelling units subject to the Rent Stabilization Law in New York City. The Board holds an annual series of public meetings and hearings to consider research from staff and testimony from owners, tenants, advocacy groups and industry experts. Reiss was appointed to the board in 2017.

    “The Rent Guidelines Board is integral to the health of the New York City housing stock and I am honored to continue serving on it in my new capacity as Chair,” said Reiss.

    Fellow of the American College of Real Estate Lawyers, Reiss serves as Academic Programs Director of the Center for Urban Business Entrepreneurship (CUBE). He is a frequently quoted expert on legal developments in the real estate finance sector and has written a regular column for The Hill. His popular blog, REFinBlog, offers a roundup of developments in the law and practices related to the real estate finance industry. He is the author of the forthcoming book, Paying for the American Dream: How to Reform the Market for Mortgages (Oxford University Press, 2019).
