Hi JCParalegal:

My circumstances though very similar, differ a bit. I lived in a house where I was rented the basement apartment. It was illegal bc it was registered as a one family house. There were no cooking devices in the basement. I used the common house. They rented me the downstairs for $1,000.00 per month. It was an oral agreement. No lease was executed. Upon them selling the house they advised me that I had to leave the apartment. I was scheduled to leave on September 2, 2010 and they accelerated my moved to August 25, 2010 because the Building Inspector was coming and they did not want my bed and living room furniture to be seen. At no time did they offer me moving expenses. I incurred the moving expense. As a matter of fact I did not have the money to move and I had to borrow it from them because the movers I contracted were going to charge me much cheaper than the ones I had to contract overnight. Now they want me to pay them back the money they gave me to move. I am almost sure that they also did not report my payment of rent there as income in their income taxes. What remedies do I have.

What about the landlord/tenant laws in New York? Are they similar to New Jersey's? I am in exactly the same situation, renting an illegal basement apartment for the past 10 months, paying the rent on time. I am moving due to problems with the landlord (entering my apt. without any prior notice, walking in without knocking, etc, not cleaning up after his dogs in the yard and the main thing - the water in the apartment is groundwater which comes up through the floor. Any suggestions? Thanks. (I plan on going to court if necessary)

First, it would be nice if she found the Caps Lock button on her keyboard before she posts any more rants.

"Especially Kimba"?
Ummmm...sure.
We all know what Kimba is like!

Lightbulb how do you know when it's illegal?

hi,
i recently learned I am living in an illegal three family house. it is only zoned as a two family house. it was a one family house with a legal basement apartment that made up the legal two family house.

the landlord split the first and second floor into two apartments making it an illegal three family. so my question to you legal eagles is, which of the two apartments becomes the illegal one, the first floor or the second floor? or is the whole house considered illegal now???

thanks
ziggy
