  1. The last time I inquired about that very issue regarding occupancy of appartments, I was told they dont check this when they issue a c/o. i dont know if this has changed at all.

    Also, I have to say Im always relieved when I read a story like this and it didnt involve me! Its like reading the obituaries and being glad your name is not there. Is that weird? LOL
