Retaliatory Evictions

Retaliatory evictions occur when a landlord attempts to evict a tenant in response to some action taken by the tenant.

Retaliatory evictions can be the landlord's response to complaints by the tenant to the landlord or a housing authority or official, the tenant's call for a city inspector, or tenant organizing.

If you are being evicted from your apartment in retaliation for making a complaint, you have rights and your landlord must follow proper legal procedures for evicting you from your apartment.
