BORING BUT IMPORTANT! (rights and stuff)
☐ Renters insurance DOES NOT cover flood damage. You have to purchase a separate flood insurance policy. Read about the National Flood Insurance Program.
☐ How to get help if your landlord doesn’t repair flood damage: Call the center for NYC Neighborhoods: 646-786-0888 and visit the City’s online Tenant Resource Portal or Mayor’s Office to Protect Tenants
☐ ✨NEW TENANT RIGHTS ✨ Starting in 2023, if you move into a new apartment, your landlord is required by a new law to share information about how the apartment has been impacted by flooding in the past.
