Rep. Gregory Meeks has been living in his 6,000-square-foot Queens mansion for nearly a decade — without city authorization.
He never got a required certificate of occupancy for the custom-built Hollis home, finished in late 2006.
A temporary certificate of occupancy, which he needed to get his mortgage, expired Jan. 4, 2007, and was never renewed, city records show.
The home has created controversy for Meeks.
He borrowed $624,000 to buy the $830,000 property and took out a $78,000 line of credit.
Then, in 2007, Meeks got a $40,000 “loan” from businessman Edul Ahmad that he said went to furnishing and other household needs. He made no payments on it and claimed to have lost the loan paperwork.
It was paid only in 2010 after the FBI began probing Ahmad, later indicted in a mortgage-fraud scheme.
The House Ethics Committee opened a probe after Meeks failed to report the loan. It dropped the matter after Ahmad refused to help.
To repay Ahmad, Meeks borrowed $60,000, taking out a mortgage with a company belonging to Democratic donor Dennis Mehiel.
