I just received a note from my management company saying NYC Housing inspectors are going to be coming by sometime between 9:00am-5:00pm. Pushing aside the fact that that time frame makes Cablevision seem precise, does anyone know what this is about?
Except for a couple years, I've lived in the city my whole life and never run across this, although I also haven't before lived in such a large building. Is this routine for larger buildings? Are they just checking for violations like smoke detectors, things blocking the fire escape, and illegal walls? Does anyone know how often this is likely to happen? Does this indicate the management company might have had a number of problems in the past? Lastly, does the building manager come along too? Should I be expecting a gang of people tromping through the apartment?
