If its not a legal 2 fam, you will surely have to move. If you cant afford to move, why stir the waters. I'm curious -- what's your motive?

: Legal and illegal apartments are a bit of a red herring. I've seen "illegal" apartments that are brand new and immaculate, and we all know of perfectly "legal" apartments that look like hovels.

: So focus on obvious safety and health issues at first, rather than jumping to conclusions about the worthiness of an apartment based on a Certificate of Occupancy.

: : I rent an apartment in a two family private residence in Brooklyn. How can I find out if it is a legal two family home, with a certificate of occupancy?
