Lawyers & Accountants

imagesIf you have a legal problem with your landlord, you may need a lawyer.

Call 311 if you have received a notice of eviction. Under the Right to Counsel, tenants who have low incomes may qualify for a free lawyer. While this technically only applies in some zip codes, it is being expanded. And during the COVID pandemic, free lawyers are being provided to anyone who needs one to avoid eviction.

Check with your tenant association to find out whether you're the only one with a particular problem. If others have the same problem, it's better to fight jointly (with a lawyer!).

If there's no tenant association or other neighbors don't have the same problem - or if you are facing a court appointment with your landlord - GET A LAWYER! Click on that link to Housing Links Lawyers for both free lawyers (for those who qualify economically) and paid tenant lawyers.

imagesAnd if you're in a Mitchell-Lama whose owners seek a rent increase in a Mitchell-Lama rental building, the tenant association is entitled to an accountant paid for by the landlord.
