: : can the landlord theaten eviction for having a home office.
: : my friend is an artist who uses a mac to do computer art and the landlord is complaining about him having machines
: : in his home.
: Some localities (i.e., Los Angeles) apparently have laws against
: working at home (even if you own the home). But there is no such
: law in NY. What matters is if you cause problems, such as noise,
: extra garbage. If you have customers come regularly, if you hang
: out a sign or advertise with the location, that might be a problem.
: There is no law against having computers in one's home and it's none
: of the landlord's business what one does with them. If the landlord
: has a valid claim of nuisance, then that's another matter, but typing
: on a computer will get the landlord laughed out of court. Make him
: specify what the nuisance is.
Just curious, what is a railroad apartment?
