Who We Are

Housing Court Answers has been the best place to go for information about Housing Court for people without lawyers for over thirty years. We provide Information Tables in the city's Housing Courts and we staff a hotline for callers with information about housing law, rent arrears assistance, and homeless prevention guidance. Staff at our Information Tables in the Housing Courts can provide explanations of legal proceedings, forms and papers, and the procedures used in the court. Staff can also refer unrepresented litigants to legal service providers, social service organizations, and charities for help with rent arrears.
