Call (267) 443-2500 for the Philly Tenant Hotline
Tenants may speak to a live housing counselor at the Tenant Union Representative Network (TURN) for:
- Free legal information
- Referral for free legal advice and representation to Community Legal Services, Legal Clinic for the Disabled or SeniorLAW Center.
If no one is available to take your call, we will do our best to return your call within 2-3 business days. We receive more calls than we can answer at the moment, so please review PhillyTenant.org for legal information, links and templates for your use.
You can also attend one of TURN’s daily free Know Your Rights webinars.

Right to Counsel
Low income tenants in zip codes 19121, 19132, 19134, 19139 and 19144 have right to free representation in eviction cases through a program called Right to Counsel. Free legal help can be accessed by calling the Philly Tenant Hotline at (267) 443-2500 or going to the RTC Housing Online Intake.
If you have an upcoming court date, you may receive a flyer or phone call from a representative to connect you with the Philly Tenant Hotline for possible free legal representation in court. But do not wait for a call, it is best to call the hotline at 267-443-2500 as soon as you have a court date.
