: Hi after 23 heat failures in my apartment this season, writing 12 letters and filing failure to heat complaints, I cannot take it anymore. I am the owner of my coop, if I file Hp action, can I be sued back in the process or later on? Want to avoid legal costs i might not be able to pay later on. Grateful for any info? I had recieved lots of great info before in regards to heating and my rights greetings and thanks Marion

i don't think they can counter-sue or counter-claim on an hp action.

re-read the info in the 'guides' in the housing court section

then call Met Council 212-693-0550 to confirm. or call the HC clerk's office.

ps: yes, they can always sue you later, even if they make up some reason. you'll have a retaliatory defense against that if they do it within 6 months. read about that too.
