On January 14th Michael N. Russo, Jr joined his wife Betsy Russo, Esquire of MCP Title Services, LLC in making a presentation to the District of Columbia Association of Realtors (DCAR)  (http://dcrealtors.org/) on the DC Tenant Opportunity to Purchase Act. (TOPA).  This law requires a landlord to both negotiate with and offer a right of first refusal to any tenant before selling a tenant housing accommodation in the District of Columbia.  TOPA is a quite complex and somewhat vague law which requires skilled realtors to shepherd the buyers and sellers through the process. 

Mike Russo is an experienced real estate transactional and trial attorney who has assisted many clients in purchasing and selling properties to which TOPA applies.  He also represents owners in litigation which may arise from claims by tenants under the TOPA law.
