I live in a rent stablizied apartment in NYC. I've been intending to install a floating wood floor, meaning that it's not glued or nailed down. They're locking planks that fit together and can easily be removed. Today the Super told me that I can't install the floor -- because another tenant who installed a wood floor has sued the building owners for flood damages to the floor, and the building owners have now prohibited wood floors in the building.
My question is: can the building owners stop me from installing this floor? It's not much different than putting in carpet or tile. Certaily not as if I'm tearing down walls or anything like that. And I would certainly be willing to sign a waiver or whatever they want me to sign. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
