No pressure to upstairs sink

I have an upstairs apartment that sat empty for three months, shortly after the new tennants moved in their kitchen hot water began to have very little pressure and takes a long time to get the hot water to come out. Is it possible for some debris to have become stuck in the hot water supply shuttoff under the sink? Is this the place I should begin to look? If not any other ideas would be appreciated. Tnaks in advance.

Check the aerator on the end of the faucet. Replace if needed.

Check and replace diverter (if needed) on faucet if there is a spray hose attached to the faucet.

Turn water off at the stop valve under the sink and remove the stems. Open water supply back on for just a few seconds to flush out.

With the 3 things done above, now you are ready to take the stop valve under the sink apart to check.
