Landlord using tenant's heat to heat common area

Recommended Posts

We have a two family residence in which the first floor occupant's furnace heats the uninsulated, drafty old, dirt floor basement. Additionally, this tenant pays for the electricity to light the common areas.

I looked through NYS Residential Code and the NY property maintenance code. Does anyone know if this practice is illegal?
