I once considered buying a house in Suffolk and I was amazed at how many houses I saw that had illegal apts., some of them basement apts. that were total fire traps (which may describe your apaartment, incidentally).

This is a situation in which you really need to see a lawyer, and right away. Your "hell" description is apt, as you appear to be renting from, literally, criminals. Apart from the utility ripoff, there is also the issue of whether you owe ANY rent for your illegal apt., now or even in past months. That is the issue I would explore, as well as the harrassment and the utility ripoff.

: i have been renting a private home in suffolk county. there is an illegal basement apartment,that his neice lives in. i have just found out that i am paying the heat/electric for the whole home..I am withholding rent now.and they have begun to harass us, and are attempting toserve us.the lease ends2/15..What options do i have
