$20K fine for renting a basement, $50 with Song Law Firm. 03/25/2016

Our client wanted to rent out her basement to help pay the mortgage.  When she bought the house, it already included a basement bedroom and full bath.  But her town – like many in New Jersey – prohibit basement living.  She was threatened by the town Building Inspector with $20,000 in fines!  After much negotiation with the Inspector, we negotiated a removal of the dividing wall and showerhead.  Her case was dismissed with only $50 in court costs.
