Are you on record as having filed the complaints? this in writing somewhere? If so you can fight the eviction by claiming its retalitory. This depends on the state but usually if a landlord evicts with 3 months to a year of a an official complaint by a the tenant the courts will consider it retalitory and null and void it....

look up retalitory eviction.... (excuse my spelling).

If you are clean and have a well kept apartment let the inspector in. If not clean up..the landlord may be hanging himself.


: My landlord is demanding that a city inspector be allowed into my apartment to inspect for alleged violations of an unknown nature. This is in retaliation for my reporting a few of his many building code violations. He says that I must allow an inspector to come into my apartment within two weeks, also he is giving me 30 days notice to move out. I believe I have rent stabilization. What shoudl I do???
