I have an English Basement unit and live upstairs. Am I required to have a license?

The short answer is YES. You are required to have a 2 Unit License as well as a valid Certificate of Occupancy stating the use as a 2 Family Flat.

 If you do not have a Certificate of Occupancy or are unsure whether one exists contact us immediately so we can research whether or not there is a previous Certificate of Occupancy on file for your property. Should a previous Certificate of Occupancy be on file you may apply for a change of ownership. will contact you. 

Should a Certificate of Occupancy not exist our Express Certificate of Occupancy product may work for you depending on the zoning of your property and as long as you meet certain building code guidelines. We will discuss this with you should a previous Certificate not exist.
