Well as a tenant you are NOT allowed to do any work on any apartment,without the landlord approval, or you might face eviction. even if you are rent stabilized!

Thank The other tenant who is a total jack assss by suing the landlord for a flood when he installed an Illegal floor. duh

Maybe and i stress maybe if they try and evict you, you could show the judge it is temporary floor and is removabale upon your vacating the apartment, and if a judge agrees then you can keep the floor, if not he will give you 10 days to cure that means remove it.


: I live in a rent stablizied apartment in NYC. I've been intending to install a floating wood floor, meaning that it's not glued or nailed down. They're locking planks that fit together and can easily be removed. Today the Super told me that I can't install the floor -- because another tenant who installed a wood floor has sued the building owners for flood damages to the floor, and the building owners have now prohibited wood floors in the building.

: My question is: can the building owners stop me from installing this floor? It's not much different than putting in carpet or tile. Certaily not as if I'm tearing down walls or anything like that. And I would certainly be willing to sign a waiver or whatever they want me to sign. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
