It’s more than a safe bet that Aaron Carr and his Housing Rights Initiative are not on the holiday shopping list of any problem landlords operating in New York City.
The reason why rings clear in HRI’s stated mission, which is “to protect the rights of tenants and preserve affordable housing against predatory landlords.”
Although bad-faith property owners and managers across NYC routinely confront tenant advocacy groups, few — if any — of those organizations are as formidable as HRI.
Or data-driven, to boot. HRI’s website puts bad housing actors on notice that its approach to taking action against unlawful rental practices is “proactive and systematic.”
It also has a strong follow-up element, namely, the connecting of tenants who are ripped off by overcharging, harassing conduct and other bad behaviors with proven and aggressive tenants’ rights attorneys.
HRI has a close connection with attorneys from Himmelstein, McConnell, Gribben, Donoghue & Joseph, LLP, working together with the firm’s deep legal team on wide-ranging cases where it is imperative to spotlight landlord wrongdoing and remedy illegal conduct.
The firm takes pride in that relationship, respecting Aaron, his committed staff and the strong efforts that HRI routinely makes to promote justice in housing outcomes across the city.
Readers who would like to learn more about HRI and the important work is does can access relevant data supplied on its website.
And tenants from anywhere across the metro area who have questions or concerns regarding wrongful landlord conduct can contact Himmelstein, McConnell for candid guidance and diligent legal presentation that is fully focused on best-case outcomes.
