NYCHA and other City employees can participate in NYCHA’s automated payroll rent deduction program. Half of the monthly rent amount will be deducted from the first two paychecks of every month. Deductions can be higher than half of the monthly rent because deductions are half of the outstanding balance, not just the rent. If no deductions are being taken out, the development did not enter the employee into the system or his or her agency is not part of the program. To terminate payroll deductions, a termination form must be completed and submitted to your property management office. To sign up, please click this link: NYCHA Self-Service Login/Register.
The Fair Housing Act does not specifically prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. But discrimination against someone who is lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) may still be in violation of the Act or other state or local regulations. If you think you've been discriminated against for these reasons, file a complaint as described above, or email HUD at LGBTFairhousing@hud.gov with general questions about LGBT housing issues. 
Housing discrimination is prohibited by the Fair Housing Act. Discrimination covered by the Act can take many different forms beyond just raising prices or lying about availability. For example, the Act addresses wheelchair access in some newer properties. Learn what the Fair Housing Act covers, how to complain, and how the investigation process works.
You can store multiple payment methods in your account, allowing you to pay your rent from multiple sources­ – for example, part from checking, part from savings, and part on a debit/credit card. More information about rent payment upgrades is coming shortly. If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact your property management office.
If you still prefer to pay by mail, please ensure you are mailing your rent EARLY to allow three to five business days for delivery and processing. When you receive your monthly rent statement each month, just tear off the remittance slip and place it in the enclosed envelope with your check or money order made out to “New York City Housing Authority.”
If your rent is paid via benefits you receive from the NYC Human Resources Administration, please review the monthly rent statement to be sure that last month’s payment was received and that no other charges are due. If additional monies are due, please mail your payment with the remittance slip in the enclosed envelope to the address printed on the slip.
NYCHA will automatically transfer your information to the new payment processing service. If you currently receive your rent statement online or if you have a recurring payment set up, your information was transferred to the new system. You will receive an email letting you know your information has been moved over to the new system with a temporary password. Please sign on and create a new password and review the transferred information for accuracy.
"I think that these funds, these investor groups are looking at a cultural move away from your garden apartment with elevators, swimming pools, tennis courts and common areas," Ellenburg said. "Homeownership is looking less desirable to some, particularly in the affordable arena, and they have a chance, for very close to the same price, to rent a three-bedroom, two-bath or a four-bedroom, three-bath home and are able to call it their own."

The only operating expense for landlords is the landscaping. In addition, the rents for single family are growing fast at 4.5% annually now compared with 3% rent growth for multifamily apartments, according to John Burns Real Estate Consulting. There is also much less turnover in single-family rentals, and the rental market is much less volatile than the home sales market.
