Housing Issues: A Newcomer's Guide. 5.
A bilingual pamphlet containing practical law-related information for recent Russian Jewish immigrants to New York City, this document addresses housing issues. Following a brief description of the Newcomer series, 14 questions are listed, each followed by an answer. Questions asked include the necessity for a written lease when renting an apartment; contents of a lease; security deposits; housing discrimination; subleasing; definitions of rent control and rent stabilization; legal responsibilities of tenants; warranty of habitability; uncooperative landlords and the tenant's right to withhold rent; eviction attempts; financial housing assistance programs; and "co-ops". A final page, titled "Where to Go for Help," lists 14 relevant consumer and legal service agencies. (CBC)
