Schneiderman Offers Tenants Rights Guidance

Attorney General Eric Schniederman releases new guidance for tenants who may be facing landlord harrassment on the basis of immigation status.

In a news release Schniederman says this guidance will help ensure that all tenants know their rights and should serve as a reminder that his office will pursue to the fullest extent of the law any landlord who illegally harasses tenants.

Schneiderman says those who believe they are a victim of harrassment should call 800-566-7636
