Baltimore County Administrative Law Judge Lawrence Stahl has ruled that a house at 7515 Knollwood Road in Towson is illegally operating as a boarding or rooming house.

Stahl ruled Tuesday that the house, located off Burke Avenue, has more unrelated people living there than allowed under county law, which says no more than two unrelated people can live in a single-family dwelling.

Stahl fined the owners $1,000 in civil penalties and said it would placed as a lien on the five-bedroom property if not paid within 30 days. He also ordered the owners to give the county Department of Permits, Approvals and Inspection the names of all current residents, including a description of their motor vehicles if any and the license tag numbers of those vehicles.
