You will get the Hearing Officer’s decision and the reasons for the decision in the mail 4-6 weeks after your hearing. The decision can be that your tenancy is terminated, that you are eligible to stay in your apartment, or it may impose restrictions such as exclusion of someone in the household, probation, or a referral to social services. If the Hearing Officer decides to terminate your tenancy, NYCHA will serve you with a Notice to Vacate. This notice is served after you have received the Hearing Officers decision. If NYCHA serves a Notice to Vacate, they can then start a holdover case in Housing Court.
The housing judge cannot change the decision from the Termination Hearing.
