What is Housing Court?
The Housing Court is a specialized court that has jurisdiction over civil and criminal actions, including equitable relief, which involves the health, safety, or welfare of the occupants or owners of residential housing. One advantage of proceeding in Housing Court is that it holds mediation sessions with housing specialists who are often successful at settling cases, thereby eliminating the cost and expense of proceeding to trial.
