If you want to start an action or proceeding against your landlord, you don't go to Housing Court. You bring the litigation in Civil Court (less than $25,000) or Supreme Court ($25,000 or more).
nyhawk gave you good adice in his message "do not put rent money in escrow":
: Some say to let the LL take me to court, others say I should start the proceeding immediatly. I don't know which is correct now. I certainly don't want to ruin my credit over a scumbag LL, but I do want to do this correctly. How do I start housing court proceedings? Should I hire a lawyer to guide me through this? Now I'm totally confused and I thought I was doing everything correctly. aaarg.
