I'm actually quite curious about this. 
1)Assuming landlord does not have items up to code (fire proof boiler doors, self grounding outlets etc) and something goes wrong, will the landlord be held more accountable than a reg apt? (If tenant claims that they thought the apt was legal and passed inspection upon completion of construction)
2) Can landlord include a rider in lease in case of order to vacate the lease is broken?
3) Any sort of rider that can be added to prevent tenant from calling the city?

Do you have documentation for the cash payment? Was sales tax collected? Does the business officially accept credit cards (if they do and refuse to take them from you, I think that might be a violation).

who is generally  in violation when no sales tax is collected, the buyer , seller or both?

I am guessing that to a certain extent both, though if I am not mistaken buyer is supposed to pay uncollected sales taxes (such as purchases from out of state sellers who are not required to collect sales taxes in your state due to no physical presence) on their state tax return. So I would think that the seller is the one with a bigger problem in this case (especially since buyer can always claim that the price paid was inclusive of the sales tax).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

can a lease even be upheld in a illegal apt?

Question: I live in Coventry (Lakewood) and a couple of weeks ago my car was towed. My brother had borrowed my car and at around 11PM he came back, parked in front of my house along the curb (officially not a parking spot) and came inside to give me the keys. I was planning to driving him back to yeshiva after a min or two as he wanted a drink. Next thing I know, my neighbor calls to say that I should come outside as my car is being towed. I run outside as they're almost done hooking it up and they start screaming and cursing as I try to get into my car. My hand was on the handle as they sped off. Next thing I know my finger is cut and bleeding. My neighbor witnessed this and advised I should call the police to get a police report for personal injury and trying to tow my car while it was only parked illegally for 2 min and I was trying to gain access to move it. I called 911 and the cops came and created a police report and eventually they worked it out for them to bring my car back for a $250 fee which I had them charge to my Amex and then disputed the transaction. They now threatened me that if I do not pay them cash or at the very least retract my dispute then they will have their attorney go to the police dept to file a "criminal fraudulent charge-back claim" and I may be subject to being convicted of a felony.

Am I not allowed to dispute a charge with my Credit Card Company?

Is this something I should be concerned about? 

TIA!

Weird huh?
Thanks, but they're assuming that they are owed this $ being that they are authorized by Coventry Association to tow illegally parked vehicles regardless as to whether or not I was trying to get into my vehicle and move it. It's only "extortion" if the demand for property or money is illegitimate. The question here is whether or not it can deemed to be a legitimate demand for $ which in turn may subject me to felony charges..

So you admit you were parked illegally, but disputed the transaction anyway?

Not sure why you disputed the charge.  I would've filed suit for assault rather than a chargeback.  Actually, I would've let it go and chalked it up to a lesson learned.

Either way, should've could've would've...Right now, if I don't retract the dispute, is it at all possible to be charged with a felony?
(Btw, I never signed anything, just gave them a photocopy of my cc as I had no other way for them to release the car)
