I did an appraisal on a duplex. They did a review on it because it was a non armslength transaction because the guy buying it was a realtor. Anyway. The reviewer disagreed with me and said it was a Triplex. In my opinion the third "unit" he is counting consisit of a hallway converted into a kitchenette, it has a 2 foot long section of countertop with a small sink in it. There is a gas hookup for some sort of Ice house stove or something tiny. There is no room for a fridge. Keep in mind this area is about 3.5 ft wide x maybe 7 to 8 ft. Off of this there is a bedroom and a 3/4 bath off it. Am I wrong? If my memory serves me you had to access this "unit" through the other main floor unit. I guess it maybe possible that the hall could of been closed of by interior doors but how secure is that? I am going to go back out and verify with new pictures this afternoon but just cuious on others thoughts.
