: does anybody have suggestions on how to get rid of an incompetent 7a administrator. My building is in the 7a program, has been so for more than half a decade, and the administrator has been very ineffective? Thanks

It's up to the judge who is supervising the administrator. If the tenants are unhappy, they should make a motion proposing alternatives. The most common alternatives are another administrator who would be more conscientious or removing the administrator altogether, in which you would have to insist that the owners of the building perform their duties.

Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law article 7A and the order of appointment require that the administrator make reports and prepare a plan for the building. Failure to do these is ground for replacement of the administrator. But make sure that you have someone else who will be able to do a better job. You may want to discuss this with the folks at HPD.

Remember, someone has to do the job with the funds which are available. It's easy to criticize, but you have to be realistic about the alternatives.
