Hi all, I found out today some workers, employed by my landlord , had entered my apartment . I had not recently, actually never, given " open consent" for them to do this, i.e., to enter my apartment without my express consent. I had , on occasions they requested my permission, granted them access _ while I was present in my apartment_. Landlord's admin people had sent a bulk email ( where I was Bcc'd ) explaining the work to be done (nowhere stated as an emergency) , together with the need for the workers to enter a specific set of apartments. Still, I was never expressly, specifically, asked to give them access, let alone enter the apartment without my consent. They only stated that my presence would not be needed and that management would grant access. Isn't this grossly illegal ? In case it matters, I live in NYC. I am reading up on local tenant rights; still, I would appreciate your input.
