Landlords always seem to tell tenants that in order for them to do something the tenant will HAVE to go to Housing Court and write a letter complaining about the offending tenant. This usually puts the tenant in danger and they are understandably afraid to exercise their rights. Do courts really require the tenant to show up and/or write letters?
Nick Schmitt
38:41
If they need any help talking through what's reasonable and what's not, and what to do about it, they may want to reach out to their local CDRC before filing a housing court claim for nuisance. Sometimes, it can be worked out without the need for a court case.

Is this form on the internet?
Michael Luat
49:07
would this be late fees previous to covid 19
Sandra Takami
49:24
Does this declaration apply to ejectment actions in supreme court?
Maribelle Vazquez
52:03
Have these declarations already been mailed to people?
Nurys Laureano,Legal Advocate, USA
52:06
Thank you
Christopher Rivera
53:47
If a tenant doesn't have a case yet but would like to submit a declaration, do they send it to their landlord, the court, or both?
Irene Feldman
53:54
I have a client/ tenant that has completed and mailed the declaration. Will they receive a response back in the mail of the pending case being on hold until May 1st.?
Tyrone McDonald
54:53
If a tenant doesn't have a pending case, would they submit the declaration directly to the landlord? Getting a hold of a landlord's address can be difficult.
Joey Uy
55:10
Does this form also work for NYCHA tenants? Or are they subject to a different process?
TRANAE MORAN
55:26
my apologies if I’ve missed this but do tenants HAVE to send the form back to the courts? Ive heard information about tenants giving this form to there landlord.
Elizabeth Malone
55:39
Is there an official statement from the State that says there is no moratorium on rents
maria matthews
56:05
Does the tenant have to prove their hardship in court after filing the declaration?
Andrew Laiosa
56:13
It was about a nuisance tenant case
Maya Eatman
56:13
can you include PEU MOPT in your resource that you are providing
Michael Luat
57:33
In regards to late fees, are they still on hold due to the moratorium?
Melba Cruz
58:54
Are all legal agencies assisting tenants in filling out the affidavit of hardship declaration?
Maya Eatman
59:14
is there a number that renters can call to get the HD due to lack of internet
A. Gago
01:00:07
if tenant is undocumented- income might not be on record -should tenant still complete form
Leah Buchinger
01:00:39
How about Mitchel Lama tenant? Can they also fill out the form?
Maya Eatman
01:02:15
I would suggest that the HD be sent certified mail to landlord
maria matthews
01:03:40
If they don't have to prove their hardship what prevents tenants from simply just checking off a box without it being true?
Lashell Goffe
01:03:43
If the landlord gave you a tenant termination letter to vacate the apartment and tenant is current on rent however can't vacate the apartment for financial reasons not having money to move
Melvin Rivera
01:03:49
how would the governing agency determine if the applicant has truly experienced a hardship?
Irene Feldman
01:04:22
If a tenant has an assigned GAL would the declaration have been sent to GAL or the tenant?
Elizabeth Malone
01:04:59
Go to the Library for internet access
Andrew Laiosa
01:05:01
Upstairs neighbor is making noise. The ll says I can't do anything to the upstairs tenant unless the tenant below is willing to go to court and write a letter of complaint when I do a holdover. This puts the tenant below in danger. is it true that the court requires the tenant below, to show up in court and write letters?
TRANAE MORAN
01:05:01
does 311 have capacity to send physical forms?
Maya Eatman
01:05:33
thanks great question T
Chris B. (Community Coordinator) BronxWorks HB
01:06:57
Is it improper for a landlord to send a notice to vacate letter to a tenant if the lease is still active? If so, would the LL have to wait till the lease is over?
Christopher Rivera
01:07:05
#cancelrent
Melvin Rivera
01:08:09
with the disparity in inflated rent and so many LL's going into foreclosure wouldn't it be good to have universal rent structured laws?
TRANAE MORAN
01:09:37
maybe people dealing with noise complaints should be seeking mediations
TRANAE MORAN
01:09:59
the New York peace institute provides mediation services
Lorraine Correa
01:10:08
would video or audio recordings of the nuisance be a way of proving a nuisance by neighbors?
Rafael Moure-Punnett
01:10:25
sue landlord in hp for harassment if they refuse to evict noisy neighbor
Nick Schmitt
01:11:16
Hi Tranae! Yes, we do offer mediation and I have other colleagues on here too offer mediation services!
TRANAE MORAN
