Basement use?

Postby urbanguynyc » Wed Aug 28, 2002 2:02 pm

Law regarding basement use?

Can a basement with full sized windows and 2 enterances (front and back of house) in a legal 3 family house be occupied by the landlord?

It seems that the City Law prevents the renting of basements (unless C/O includes the floor as a legal living unit) to tenants.

My question is can an owner use a basement as a seperate unit for himself without converting to a legal four family?
