: Are you rent stabilized is there 6 apartments in your building?
: I would withhold this months rent until you get an answer.....
: Also Check at the buildings dept for the certificate of occupancy, see
: if the apartment is listed, and at DHCR to see what the legal rent is.
Yes, the answer will be an eviction notice. That is a looney suggestion. Checking the C of O, rent stabilization status etc., likewise, does not address the problem, which is obviously that the super is tapping into your electrical line. It is obvious but not, at this point, proven, thus you cannot withhold rent right now.
Hopefully one of the lawyers who follow this board will respond to this, as you have a potentially serious, even criminal issue. Obtaining access to the electrical lines, by an independent electrician, is your first objective.
