At Housing Court Answers we help people in New York City navigate the complex world of Housing Court and NYC’s tangle of housing laws and regulations.
We are the first and best place to go to in New York City for information about Housing Court. We help people without lawyers at our information tables in the city’s Housing Courts, on our hotline, and through this website. Here you will find our detailed information sheets on Housing Court procedures and information about the courts. For new visitors, please enter the website via the buttons on the left. Are you a tenant? A landlord? An advocate or researcher? You will find pages with many links designed to help you navigate Housing Court, housing law, or find other help.
