Found a note on my door this morning, as did everyone else in my complex. It seems the City has decided to start going around and looking inside people's apartments for health and safety code violations.

Well, they can go fuck themselves! I don't know what their little game is, but the government isn't getting into MY apartment without a warrant. These assholes can go piss up a rope. Check my apartment for safety violations. They must be getting desperate for money if they think they can just walk into someone's apartment and start issuing tickets for having a stock of magazines too close to the fire place, or too many shoes in front of the door.

[mumbling]Fuckin' bastards go and piss me off before lunch...[/mumbling]

You sure about that? Most leases say that they have to give you 24-48 hours of notice before the property management/landlord/other can legally enter without your permission. Read it again.

If you rent it, it's yours till the lease is up. That is what those little green slips of paper with dead presidents on them you give the landlord is for.


It comes with many clauses and stipulations.

Every lease I've ever seen says that the landlord can inspect the property with 24-hour notice (give or take.)

If yours doesn't, then go ahead a change the lock on the door.

Legally, you probably don't have a leg to stand on if you intend to hide behind your lease. The fact remains that the property belongs to the owner, not the renter.

It's a money-grab by the City. They have been talking about doing this in Austin. The City is not making any money on new construction permits and does not want to lay off any of the hard working, pension drawing employees. Last I heard was the fee for these inspections would range from $25- $75 per residence. This is going to encompass single family homes and all apartment units.

Thats not true at all. He still maintains a residence there.

If it is listed in the contract, the landlord can give 24 hours notice and do a walk through but he cannot do it on behalf of the government.

My lease has very few clauses and stipulations.



And yes, code enforcement is proabaly looking for fire code violations. They may be trying to keep the building from burning around your ears.

OK, then help OP sue everybody until he is blue in the face and broke, because they are in their legal right if the landlord/property management allows them in and gives tenants proper notice.

Check your lease agreement again. I bet there's a part in there that states the landlord may enter your apartment as long as you are given advance notice.

Is it possible that some other tenats complained to the city about issues not being resolved? Therefore they want to inspect the property to make sure the landlord is taking care of the place?

Not if the city then prosecutes the renter for any unsafe conditions. Think about this for a minute. A citation is a criminal charge. I cannot circumvent consent or a warrant through an outside entity, they essentially become an employee of the government.

Can the landlord walk through, yes, can he take others through, no.
