New York Tenant Complaint Process


Landlord-tenant disputes are quite common, especially if the building being rented is not up to code. In New York, there are a slew of regulations that landlords must follow to ensure their building is safe and livable. A landlord is responsible for the upkeep of the property and for the health and safety of their tenants, which is referred to as the warrant of habitability. If this is breached, a tenant may file a complaint with the New York State Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD).
