Landlord Fined for Transient Occupancy in Class "A" Multiple Dwelling

LVT Number: #30902

DOB issued three violation notices to landlord based on using a permanent dwelling for transient resident purposes, failure to maintain a building in a safe and code-compliant manner, and failure to provide a fire alarm system. DOB claimed that one apartment was occupied by four guests for less than 30 days. DOB also said the building lacked the required number of means of egress for every floor, and that there was no fire alarm required for transient use. The ALJ dismissed the violations, finding insufficient proof.
