DOB issued a number of violation notices to landlord based on illegal alteration of a three-family house into SRO units with key-locking devices on a number of floors and in the cellar. An additional Class A apartment also had been added to the second floor. Landlord disputed whether the building owner was properly named in the violations, and stated that some of the SRO tenants had refused to move out, although the cellar had been vacated.
