• Housing and Eviction

    This category includes information about evictions, problems with your landlord, and some information about subsidized (reduced-rent) housing.

    Please note that New York City has some very different rules and procedures.

    Please also note that some local police departments and courts may not be well-informed of tenants' rights.
