LVT Number: #30797

DOB issued violation notices to landlord for illegally converting a two-family residence to a three-family, in violation of the building's 1974 certificate of occupancy (C of O). The DOB inspector stated that a Class A apartment was added to the first floor. The C of O stated that the permitted use of the first floor was for a recreation room, storage, laundry, and one-car garage. The C of O also stated that, "occupancy by more than two families is unlawful and renders the owner liable to prosecution."
