  1. This is a very bad idea. Very few homeowners in ENY or anywhere else will go through the expensive process of properly converting an illegal basement apartment to a legal basement apartment. Also remember that in areas zoned only for 1 or 2 family homes a 2-family house can never legally add a 3rd apartment because it violates the zoning laws.

    If anything the NYCDOB and FDNY should be cracking down on existing illegal apartments.
