:And they couldn't use Housing Court, since I'm no longer a tenant. I got a notice to pay or vacate the premises, after I had moved out.

got a notice? what notice? a rent demand?
this is shortly followed by a Petition (lawsuit). you must must must follow up on this. even tho "they can't sue you in Housing Court", if they start a lawsuit and you don't go to court, they get a default judgment which also hits your credit reports. go to your HC once a week and check the public access computer. then get the case dismissed by bringing proof that you moved: telephone, cable installation bills, movers bills, etc.

ps: there's a good Small Claims booklet here:
: Is there another court the landlord could hypothetically sue me in, besides small claims court?
: Any info would be appreciated, thanks
