easy, in long island they pretend to be a homebuyer and get realtors to bring them in . my buddy who had a home for sale had one get in this way.

i believe if they see work being performed they can sticker the property and stop work until the permits and property can be inspected.

if there is any probable cause or complaint about an illegal or{ supposed complaint?) an administrative warrant is very common when inspectors arent given acces to the premises.

i would think the searching for an illegal apartment card can be the equal of the ricco act and pretty much give them open access to gain entry without much to do if they know how to play the system..

like cops get around the rules frisking people with the ole we had a complaint about an attempted burglary and the description matched what you were wearing.

no matter what we all do for a living we learn the ins, the outs and the secreats to bending the rules and getting around the obstacles that prevent us from doing what we need to do or want to do.

Be prepared to pay a $5,000 civil penalty for the violation when your contractor goes to pull the work permit
How bizarre that one would be forced to pay a civil penalty, a fine, for something done by a someone else. Makes no sense.

They'll leave you a few notices asking you to schedule an inspection. Ignore those and they can write you a violation for what they think is going on. Then you can have your day in court to argue it.
