This time it’s a landlord getting tangled up in rules that I’m sure someone thought were absolutely vital. Because the landlord doesn’t have a permit that maybe they were supposed to have, a tenant has been living in their building without paying rent for six years. The tenant claims the landlord’s failure to get the permit means the building is unsafe, which is a pretty hilarious position for the tenant to take if you stop and think about it for a second. The tenant has been living in the building for six years. If the building is unsafe, why hasn’t the tenant moved out?
