Electric problem

I have recently bought a new home which is 7 years old. Since Last week light ins Coat closet and basement are not working. I tried tripping the circuit Breaker but that did not help. Can you advise? I am a novice so please be detailed.

Welcome to the forums! If you fill out your profile, we will know where you are located. Sometimes posters are in different parts of the US or in other countries where electrical stuff is different.
Are the lights controlled by a wall switch? Do you have any tripped GFCI receptacles in the basement, garage, bathrooms, kitchen that may be powering these lights?

have you tried changing the light bulbs?

do you have any sort of electrical tester and can you use it?

anything else happen at the same time? Doing any repair work on anything?
