Owners with illegally converted basements and cellars may face civil and criminal penalties.

Occupants of illegal basement and cellar apartments face potential dangers such as carbon monoxide poisoning, inadequate light and ventilation, and inadequate egress in the event of a fire.

Occupants of illegal basement and cellar apartments may be ordered by the City to vacate or leave any such apartment.

Why freeze your buns off every night? :shrug:
