Travelguyhi - great response and advice! You covered it all.
Christina - there os a good chance the conversion was done without permits. If you really wanted to find out, you could go to the building inspector's office in your town, and pull up records for the house to see if permits were pulled.
My question is, why do you want to report it? Unless you are fearful that the wiring might be faulty, or there is some hazard.........if you like living there..........then continue to do so.

Did the landlord do something to annoy you?
Oh..........I just noticed you asked this back in May! What did you wind up doing?... more
