Hello my name is ***** ***** and I have a question regarding the home that I live in. It is a five bedroom house and each of the bedrooms are occupied. We each live independently of each other, the owner of the house is really incompetent and he has been illegally renting out the rooms in his home since he has been the owner. The house is registered as a single family home but he is charging us separate monthly rents to pay for the mortgage
and the utilities
. I know that this house has never been inspected and he remodeled it without permits since 2012. My issue is how can I obtain the house from the owner so my house mates and I will not have to move due to his mistakes? I am willing to fill out the proper documents to bring the house up to code and get it inspected I just need the owner to no longer be the owner
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Yes I can. The house is located in passiac county in new Jersey and it is a single family ranch house which was built in 1962. The owner purchased it in 2012 and since then he has been renting it out to different tenants for funds. When I moved in 2013 the house was already remodeled. Now 2 and a half years later everything is coming to the light. For example our electrical
wiring of the house is extremely off, the ceilings on the second floor do meet the required height, the second floor kitchen is also where the boiler and the heater is located. And the owner has never had a house or health inspector view property since he purchased it. I am a Paralegal student so I know that the operations of this house is illegal and I know the correct solutions to fix them I just want my roommates
and I to be protected. The township where I live does not about this and I was considering of telling them
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Real Estate
