Landlord Tenant Law - NYC Landlord-Tenant Mediation Program

New York City ("NYC") announced a new program to provide housing security to tenants across the city who may be facing hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Effective immediately, the Landlord-Tenant Mediation Project will serve NYC residents each month by addressing rent-related issues in a mediation setting, outside of the housing court system. Mediation places the decision-making power in the hands of the parties involved, according to the city, which results in solutions to rental issues due to the COVID-19 pandemic for both landlords and tenants.

Priority will be given to tenants and small landlords who do not have legal representation. Eligible tenants will be referred to non-profit Community Dispute Resolution Centers (CDRCs) in each borough, and each CDRC will manage case intake, provide mediation sessions, and monitor case follow up for tenants.
