In Reply to: illegal boardinghouse/B&B upstairs posted by Carole Abrahams on May 09, 2000 at 01:09:55:
: N.Y. City Rent Controlled tenant in apartment above complainant is operating a boardinghouse/B&B. This illegal business causes considerable interruption of complainant's sleep. Has anyone dealt with this problem successfully? Can anyone offer advice as to getting government officials to close down this illegal boarding house? Thank you.
: Building is not a coop or condo
You did not give enough details for us to understand what s/he is doing that you believe might be in violation of a law/statute or code. If s/he lives in the apartment while these overnight shortterm/longterm guests (paying or not) are there, it might not be.
If any neighbor is causing any problem, your first step is to complain to your landlord: hints on effective complaint writing are on TenantNet Home. If the problem is immediately life-threatening a tenant should call the landlord then call 960-4800.
