>>It is infact more like a "Rooming House", each peson pays seperate rent for thier bedroom & we share common space; kitchen, living room etc. I say that I believe it is zoned as Multiple Family because the LL got in trouble earlier this year for not having a kitchen on each floor, & for renting rooms in the attic. Before there were no kitchens in this house at all.
>>A sour tenant was asked to leave & refused, LL tried to evict him for non-payment; same tenant reported LL to authorities for violating Zoning Laws. LL was forced to install a kitchen on each floor & relocate tenants that were living in the attic.
>>Seperate radiators in each room, no exchange of air between rooms. Today I Installed a Window Fan & Set It on Exhaust - Blowing Out.
>>There is no lease or prime tenant, I pay cash & get a reciept, I have every reciept since I moved in 6-1/2 years ago.
>>>>>>>>>>As far as I can tell, all they can do is ask me to smoke outside & if I refuse they can ask me to leave. If I don't leave can the evict me & on what grounds ? As long as I keep paying my rent on time what could they do ? What if they refuse to accept my rent ? >>>>>>>>>>Haven't spoken to LL or tenants yet, I am hoping the exhaust fan set on high will do the trick.
