Landlord Fined $10,000 for Adding SRO Units to One-Family House
LVT Number: #30445
DOB issued 11 violation notices to landlord for altering a residence as a dwelling for more than the legally approved number of families, as well as for failure to comply with an ECB order. DOB's inspector found that the one-family dwelling had been converted to a four-family dwelling by the creation of SRO units in the attic and on the second floor. Each SRO had a key-locking device, sleeping quarters, personal items, and a cooking device. DOB later found that landlord had failed to comply or file a certificate of correction.
