Eviction Free NYC is a free resource from JustFix.nyc for anyone who has received an eviction notice. It helps you figure out the next steps in fighting your eviction and locate free legal assistance. The entire resource is available in English, en español, en Français, and nan kreyol.
Simply type in your address, or choose the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) public housing development you live in from a drop-down menu, and a pop-up message will appear to say if you’re eligible for a free attorney. Next, select the type of eviction notice you’ve received, or review a few samples of the samples shown to help you figure it out. Finally, you’ll be shown instructions on where to go in housing court to get matched with an attorney, if you’re eligible.
Even if you aren’t eligible, a list of other legal service providers, clinics, and organizations that are closest to you will appear so you can call or email them to ask about your other options.
