Apartment Illegally Partitioned for Transient Use

LVT Number: #24861

DOB issued violation notices to landlord for doing work without a permit and unlawful occupancy. DOB's inspector found that two bedrooms had been created by partitions in an apartment without a permit, that the living room didn't have proper light or ventilation, and that occupants had rented the unit for a three-day stay. Transient use was contrary to DOB records for the building. Landlord claimed that the partition was only temporary and that the apartment wasn't transiently occupied. The ALJ ruled against landlord and fined it $1,000.
