Customer Question

The person who lived in NYCHA apartment in Manhattan died last week. Five other people live in the apartment but no other name appears on lease except the deceased. They face eviction. I would like to hire an attorney.
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?
Customer: Manhattan, NYC, NYS
JA: Has any paperwork been filed?
Customer: No
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: NYS HRA has contributed to the rent since 2012.
