Landlord / Tenant Rights & Responsibilities
Whether you are a tenant or a landlord, we provide Landlord/Tenant Counseling to help you deal with issues related to security, eviction, habitability, rights, handicapped access, and more.
If you are a tenant involved in a dispute with your landlord, it is important that you document everything and communicate with your landlord in writing. For more information, please see our FAQs.
In addition to seeking help from a Long Island Housing Services counselor, you can learn about your rights by reading the New York State Attorney General’s Guide to Tenant Rights.
