DON'T EVER BUY ANY APARTMENTS IN THIS COOP WHICH IS A SCAM! ANYBODY TELLS YOU OTHERWISE AND SAYS THAT IT'S A GREAT INVESTMENT IS MOST LIKELY ON THE BOARD, A RELATIVE OF A BOARD MEMBER, IN BED WITH THE MANAGEMENT COMPANY OR THEIR LAWYERS, WHO ARE MOST LIKELY SCUMBAGS. JUST TAKE A LOOK AT ALL OF THE PROPERTIES THAT THE SAME LAWYER REPRESENTS AND ALL OF THE COMPLAINTS AND PROBLEMS RESIDENTS HAVE HAD. SAME NONSENSE. IF YOU ARE NOT DONALD TRUMP, YOU CANNOT WRITE OFF YOUR LOSSES AND DECLARE BANKRUPTCY AND THE STATE WILL MAKE YOU PAY TAXES ON YOUR FORECLOSED APT. AND THE ANTIQUATED LAW THAT WE HAVE SAYS THE COOP BOARD CAN DO WHATEVER THEY WANT, NO QUESTIONS ASKED, BECAUSE THE LAW PROTECTS THEM. DO YOURSELVES A FAVOR AND DON'T EVER BUY A COOP, ESPECIALLY ONE AT THIS DUMP! THIS IS COMING FROM SOMEONE WHO ACTUALLY LIVED THROUGH THE OSHA DEBACLE AND THE INCOMPETENCE OF THE BOARD THAT SPENT $20 MILLION ON A NEW HEATING SYSTEM. I WAS A HOMEOWNER THERE AND WE WERE FORCED TO FORECLOSED BECAUSE THE COOP BOARD LIED WHEN WE FIRST BOUGHT ABOUT THEIR FINANCIAL SITUATION AND THEY DON'T HAVE TO BE HELD CRIMINALLY LIABLE FOR WHAT THEY DID. HAD WE AND OUR ATTORNEY BEEN TOLD THE TRUTH WE WOULD HAVE NEVER BOUGHT THERE. DON'T BELIEVE THE BOARD OR THE MANAGEMENT COMPANY, BELIEVE THE PEOPLE WHO LIVED THERE AND BOUGHT THERE. ... more

As long as the zoning laws allow it, legally it shouldn't be a problem. The question is can the unit take the additional wear and tear? Will it affect any of your existing tenants? Are they able to make the rent payments? Do they have a good rental history? ... more

No, your lease is a binding contract. If you want to bring an additional person into the unit you need to go back to your landlord and ask him if he would allow it and add that person to the lease. Otherwise you would be in breach and your landlord would have the right to evict you if he so choose. ... more

You would have to check with your local code enforcement organization. Generally there are square footage requirements for the number of people and then there are usually requirements related to sex of the occupants. for example, in most cases children of the opposite sex are not allowed to share the same bedroom. I do not know California law but you should be able to call your local housing authority and they should be able to tell you. I know in NJ there was a single father with a daughter and he had to have a two bedroom unit because according to NJ rules he was not permitted to share a bedroom with his daughter, she was a toddler. I would think if this applied to the father then a mother with a son would be handled the same way. Again you have to check your local regulations. Call your county housing authority ... more

Ddbinvestorsllc answered:
No I don't think he is right. I am a landlord in NJ. My understanding of the definition of a boarding house in NJ is that is has to have multiple units intended for short term single occupancy. My understanding of this is it has to be more like a hotel or a bed and breakfast type deal where you have multiple units where people are occupying these units for a short period of time. This is not the same as having a house with multiple bedrooms and renting that house a set group of people for 6 months or a year. Now if you have multiple and different people who are coming and going and it's not the same group of people,, (for example if this is college fraternity or sorority, then I could see the possibility of this getting into that gray area. If not, then I think he is making a mistake. My standard for renting has always been that anyone living in one of my units that is over the age of 18 must be listed on the lease and must provide all the appropriate documentation as anyone else living in the unit. ... more
