Expert Representation Across a Spectrum of Rent Board Hearings

Our team specializes in representing tenants in a variety of rent board petitions and hearings, including but not limited to:

  • Decrease in Housing Service Petition Hearings: Tenants may experience a reduction in essential services (such as heat, water, or parking) without a corresponding reduction in rent. Our attorneys can help you petition for rightful adjustments.
  • Hearings for Jurisdiction: Determining the rent board’s authority over specific disputes can be complex. We provide clarity and representation to ensure your case is heard.
  • Unlawful Rent Increase Petition Hearings: Facing an unjust hike in rent? We specialize in challenging unlawful rent increases, advocating for fairness and adherence to legal standards.
  • Costa-Hawkins Rent Increase Challenge Hearings: Navigating the complexities of the Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act requires expert legal guidance, especially when challenging rent increases on exempt properties.

    Rent board hearings, while administrative, demand a sophisticated level of legal understanding and advocacy, often overseen by hearing officers with legal backgrounds.
