In the title molecule, C13H8Cl2O2, the dihedral angle between the benzene rings is 74.53 (9)°. An intramolecular O-HO hydrogen bond leading to a S(6) ring is observed. In the crystal, the molecules are connected into a three-dimensional network by C-HO and - [inter-centroid distance = 3.6254 (10) Å] interactions.
