Not infrequently, victims of crime want to move as a result of a crime. This booklet provides information about specific protections and rights that victims of crime such as domestic abuse, sexual assault and stalking have if they seek to end their lease early, or transfer to a new unit in public or subsidized housing, as a result of the domestic abuse, sexual assault or stalking.

Victims of other crimes can review this booklet instead: Leaving Your Housing After a Crime: For Advocates Assisting Victims of non-DV Crimes.
