Getting (and Preventing) Access to Information

As a tenant, you may need to gain access to information about your landlord or your building in order to protect your rights. Similarly, you may find that other people have access to information about you which may affect your ability to find housing or stay in your apartment.

The purpose of this chapter is to tell you what information is public, how you can get access to this information, how you can keep personal information about yourself private, and what special rules exist that relate to criminal records.
