This one is tricky, lived in my apt 12 years. I was receiving Sec 8 voucher assistance for 10. The housing authority then terminated the assistance claiming I had unreported income. I did not. After their window dressing administrative hearing the termination was affirmed. I have file a petition for judicial review writ in Superior Court, after almost 10 months, had the hearing on Dec 3, the court took the matter under submission. Now today LL served me a 3 day notice for the 6 months back rent, I'm awaiting the decision on whether or not the Housing Authority must retroactively reinstate me and bring the rent current, could this be an answer to an UD to somehow enjoin the LL to allow me the time to receive the writ decision? Thanks in advance for any advice. There's a bit more, too.
Landlord-tenant law is governed mostly by state laws, and covers issues like security deposit limits and deadlines, evictions, and the right to withhold rent.
Tenant rights vary by state, but in general, you have the right to safe and habitable housing, privacy, and to not be discriminated against, among other things.
