The lawsuit shows husband-wife duo has been able to live rent-free at the 1,100 square foot apartment because of the Loft Law, an obscure New York state law which was passed in 1982.
According to the law, if a building doesn't have a residential certificate of occupancy and safety codes up to modern standards, its landlord can't expel tenants from living there.
As the couple's building doesn't have the required certificate, so they can't be evicted though they haven't paid rent.
