Asked by Chuck, 97214 • Sun Oct 16, 2011
adivce or a referal to help me please? I live in a basement apartment the biggest window mesauements are (17x12 1/5) and the only exit is the front door.there are no fire exits or smoke detecors or other kind of alarms I have been told by a licensed contractor/plumber/painter that i was living in a "Very dangerous hazardous unit that is illegal to rent. I have been living here for over a year.
WHAT I NEED TO KNOW IS
1) Is it true that the department of buildings evict you with no notice if you didn't know your apartment was illegal. I pay my own electric, phone, cable etc... and i have been here for a year but if i report my living situations can the city kick me out?
2) It is also illegal for a landlord to charge rent for an illegal unit? So if i find out this is illegal to be living here and i cant move right away do i have to keep paying this guy rent?
