In addition to explaining much of the above in fuller detail, The HRA`s Tenant`s Guide outlines the full hearing and adjudication process after a tenant complaint is filed. The booklet also touches on conversion of properties into coops, what properties fall under the rent stabilization law and how rent stabilization works. If the apartment you live in or are looking at falls into these categories, you should pick up the booklet. Both the booklet and HRA can also direct you to some free or lowcost legal services, should you need them.
