Dear BP members,
I have a question: I am renting a multifamily unit in New Haven, CT. The 2nd and 3rd floor attic are connected as one unit. I am renting to 3 graduate students on the 2nd floor and 1 graduate student on the 3rd floor attic. The attic is quite large with private space and has a kitchenette with mini fridge, microwave, and kitchen sink. I know the stove is not allowed for legal purpose, but is the hot plate allowed? Hope to get any experienced landlords/investors advice. Thank you very much in advance!
Can any investors/landlords advise? Thank you very much!
@Peace Lily Ok, so the 2nd & 3rd floor are 1 unit but you're renting it out on 2 separate leases? Just looking for clarity... I'd imagine that a hot plate is legal to use if the tenants wanted too. But that certainly shouldn't be their only means of cooking. Are you providing the hot plate or does it belong to the tenants?
@Cameron Norfleet thank you for replying. The 2nd and 3rd is a combined one unit, but it is a shared room lease so it will be on a separate lease. Tenant will provide his own hot plate if he chooses too.
Is there a oven/stove in the unit?
