TENANT FACT SHEETS
Published by
HOUSING COURT ANSWERS

Information on NYC Housing Court is available on the New York City Housing Court website as well as from an organization called Housing Court Answers (formerly called City-Wide Task Force on Housing Court). They are a not-for-profit coalition of housing advocates and legal service providers. Their information sheets contain legal information, but they should not be considered legal advice and can not be considered as a substitute legal advice and representation by a qualified attorney.

Tenant Information Sheets, available on the Housing Court Answers website, include:

  • The Court Process
  • Answering Non-Payment Petitions
  • Holdover Proceedings
  • Housing Part (HP) Actions for Repair and Services
  • Stipulations in Court
  • Eviction Notice from a Marshal
  • When Rent Deposits are Required

  • Tenant Information Sheets are also available in other languages (Spanish, French, Russian, Chinese & Hindi)
