Hello! I am a licensed attorney, eligible to practice in front of state and federal court, who is ready to help. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating (click here to see my ratings information) so all that means is that you can count on me to help today. A landlord could be fined up to $1,000 per day for failing to obtain a license. However, it is highly unlikely that this would be enforced unless the tenant made a complaint or somebody else somehow found out and referred you to the county authorities.
