(Attach extra sheets if needed.)


New England Realty Associates Limited Partnership (the "Company") has determined that it is impracticable to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2022 (the "Form 10-Q") by the November 9, 2022 due date or within the five calendar day extension permitted by the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").


As previously reported in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on October 11, 2022, on October 3, 2022, The Hamilton Company, Inc. (“Hamilton”) experienced a cybersecurity incident involving ransomware. Hamilton has been engaged by NewReal, Inc., the general partner of New England Realty Associates Limited Partnership (the “Company”) to perform general management functions for the Company’s properties in exchange for management fees. After becoming aware of the incident, Hamilton conducted an initial investigation into their digital environment and discovered encryption within the environment. The threat actor encrypted areas within Hamilton’s digital environment. Hamilton has been working with independent third-party cybersecurity specialists to restore the environment and return to operations securely. However, access to Hamilton’s files remains limited and the Company does not have access to all of the information it would need to prepare the Form 10-Q.


As a result, the Company does not have the resources to and will not file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the third quarter of 2022 by the fifth calendar day following the required filing date, as prescribed in Rule 12b-25.

(Name) (Telephone Number)


(2)           Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed?  If answer is no, identify report(s).  

x Yes     ¨ No


(3)           Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof?  ¨ Yes     x No


If so:  attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.


While the Company does not currently have access to all of its financial records and files, based on the information available to it management expects that, while there may be some differences in results, there will not be a significant negative change to the results of operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2022 from those for the quarter ended September 30, 2021.
