Landlords often harass tenants in order to force them out of their apartments, which is taken into account by New York City Tenant Protection Act. The definition of harassment includes the use of force or threats, the frequent filing of baseless court actions, repeated interruptions of essential services, and other tactics that may substantially interfere with the comfort, repose, peace or quiet of any unit’s lawful occupant. The term ‘essential services’ refers to basic necessities such as electricity, hot water, and reasonable repairs, along with the maintenance of the building.
Tenant sexually harassed or assaulted by the landlord or their agents are also entitled to file a harassment complaint. As the attorney said, “Harassment complaints are filed at the New York State Department of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR) if the apartment is rent-stabilized or rent-controlled. Else, the tenant may bring a legal action against the landlord in the Housing Court.”
