Kucker Marino Winiarsky & Bittens, LLP Announces Exclusive Partnership With ClickNotices
The deal will enable the New York City-based real estate law firm to streamline non-payment of rent process, reducing the rent collection burden on both tenants and landlords
NEW YORK, NY – December 16, 2019 – Kucker Marino Winiarsky & Bittens, LLP, a New York City-based full-service real estate law firm, announced today that the firm has signed an exclusive partnership with ClickNotices, a best-in-class software solution that provides property managers and landlords with a tool to automate and ensure consistency in their process for dealing with residents who are delinquent in their rental payments, in New York City.
ClickNotices’ software platform will streamline and hasten the non-payment process for both law firms and property managers, thus preventing human error and resulting in cost reductions. ClickNotices’ technology has become even more critical following Albany’s passage of the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act of 2019 (HSTPA). Notably, as a result of the HSTPA, New York landlords are now required to deliver to each delinquent tenant a notice indicating that their rent has not been paid prior to the service of a formal rent demand. Thanks to ClickNotices, these newly required notices can be automatedly created and sent via certified mail directly to delinquent residents with minimal personal interaction. Additionally, since the HSTPA extended the time periods required for rent demands and petitions, as well as created harsher penalties for landlords demanding incorrect rental amounts from tenants, the incentive to ensure efficient and accurate noticing has never been of greater importance.
“As the exclusive partner to ClickNotices in New York City, we are able to provide stellar services to our clients by efficiently streamlining the necessary processes to begin legal proceedings due to delinquencies,” said Craig P. Gambardella, a Partner at Kucker Marino. “The holistic approach authored by ClickNotices facilitates regular communication between property managers and residents, while minimizing human error and optimizing results.”
The cloud-based software solution enables users of the platform to easily login to the system and transmit both reminder notifications and statutorily required legal notices. With the click of a button, the ClickNotices platform eliminates tedious back and forth conversations between clients and attorneys and automatically generates, produces and assembles all requisite pre and post-litigation paperwork for property managers and attorneys to review, edit (if necessary), serve and file.
“Our exclusive partnership with Kucker Marino is an exciting development for our company,” said Matt Barbieri, the CEO of ClickNotices, the Maryland-based technology company. “Our relationship with the law firm will ensure that our entire customer portfolio will receive the best court representation possible.”
In addition to efficiencies created in generating paperwork, the ClickNotices platform provides transparency to all corporate stakeholders throughout the rent delinquency process. Property managers and property management executives alike can each view the current payment status of all portfolio residents, ensure the timely processing of non-payment filings, and view all case history information concerning each delinquent resident. ClickNotices also facilitates compliance with fair housing laws in New York and elsewhere by ensuring that cases are processed based on client-determined protocols, alleviating the possibility of unfair housing practices. Notable customers of ClickNotices include Winn Residential, Conifer Realty, Pinnacle and Avenue5 Residential.
