Ig I understand this.....this addition was put on without obtaining proper permits?? That was taking quite a chance if there had ever been a fire or some catastrophe - your insurance policy might have refused to pay for any repairs since, by your own words, the apartment was illegal..

I'd think you need to "legalize" the apartment first, before you can attempt a refinance.
I am surprised it wasn't an issue when you bought the house from your mom, unless you paid cash.

You'd have to first find out if the apartment is legal - if the neighborhood is zoned to allow an apartment in the first place.

Start by calling the town zoning department and asking.
Then you will most likely need to have the building department in to inspect the work that was done to make sure it meets code requirements.. If it (the addition) was never inspected, you will also need to then have the town assessor in to recalculate the taxes, as the addition, legal or otherwise, adds value (if it's allowed).

Time to fess up and get this taken care of.

You should also speak to a lender, and see what their take is on this.

Good luck.

Anthony Musso answered:
If you look at both your tax bill and property information records on the Huntington, NY website (all are public records) both documents indicate your property is .3 acres.

Both your listing and Zillow show your property being .58 acres

Trulia shows your "lot size" being 5,227 square feet. 1 acre is 43,560 square feet making your lot size about .12 acre.

I do not know how Trulia works behind the scenes. Perhaps it is pulling public information for only 1 of your lots. I am only speculating here.

I have lived in Harborfields school district for 29 years and raised 4 children here. I can tell you that prices have fluctuated since 2009, initially declining slightly and more recently increasing. There are also areas within the district that maintain their value, regardless of market statistics. The award winning school district , strong sense of community, proximity to beaches, museums and nearby Villages, consistently attract Buyers. I serve all of Long Island, but specialize in the towns on north shore of Long Island and would be delighted to hear from you.

Hi Marina,
We are seeing an increase in prices and the market is busy. Over the last several months, I have had several buyers involved in bidding wars. Houses are selling and the ones that are priced competitively and compellingly, have multiple offers and are going quickly.
Please feel free to contact me to discuss it in detail.

Listening and respecting your needs are the most important part of the process, 2nd price point so that he or she will provide you with locations for you to consider. Then commit to hiring agent to work for you exclusively and get the ball rolling. What is your time frame to move? ... more

Hi Pearly
I would be happy to have one of my agents assist you . Beware of craiglist ads although many rentals ads are legitiment many are there because apts lack the proper safety requirements to qualify for COs. Rentals listed thru MLS are required to be legal and therefore meeting all safety code requirments. Good Luck
