I’m with Craig, I don’t see where removing the second kitchen either helps the situation or more importantly, is within our authority. Where is there anything that says a single family home can’t have 2 kitchens? or bedrooms in a basement? etc….

If they legitimately want to go back to a single family dwelling (like mine did) with only one kitchen and did a major reno, then that’s easy. But if they want to get out of the requirements of 9.8 with the limited amount of work possible, remove any locks on the separation door (nothing says you can’t use a rated door in a non-rated interior partition) and letter from the legal owners acknowledging it’s use as a single family dwelling and move on.
