Legal Services Program
P.A.'L.A.N.T.E. provides legal and mediation assistance to residents acting as a tenant or tenant association representative, in order to help tenants: remain in their apartments, overturn illegal rent increases, identify unhealthy hazardous conditions, file housing code violations with the appropriate government agencies, present findings to the landlord and engage the landlord in renovating apartments with housing code violations and unsafe living conditions.
In collaboration with our legal partners, P.A.’L.A.N.T.E. provides a weekly legal clinic and provides free legal representation to renters and low-income homeowners who are at risk of becoming homeless.
