Asked by Pat, Brooklyn, NY • Wed Sep 21, 2011
I recently bought my home in November from someone who flipped it. They made it a legal two family putting a bathroom and kitchen upstairs. I have the CO stating it is legal. Now the town is telling me the home is non conforming and that I would have to apply for a conforming permit to make the alterations that were done by the people that flipped it. To my understanding the home was a legal two family home and I was never made aware of this situation and honestly never even heard of it this being my first home I have purchased. The house was built in 1888 are they honestly saying that since the zoning and permit laws went into affect nothing has been altered in this house until 2011? Am I liable for this and who should have brought this to my attention?
