Very interesting (and useful) that site is... Looked up my previous apartment, a DOB inspector had started sniffing around 9 weeks before I moved and I was pretty sure it was because my apartment was illegal, even though the landlord would not tell me straight out after the inspector started coming around (LL did tell me I would have to relocate "temporarily" - he tried to put me in another apartment of his but I didn't like the building, and he couldn't tell me how long "temporarily" was, so I refused).

I moved before an inspector ever got access (I was always at work when he came around) and it looks like from the BIS site that the very *day after* I moved out DOB executed a search warrant. See it got hit with illegal occupancy (guess one night of vacancy wasn't enough time to obliterate all evidence of my previous occupancy), alteration and work w/o permit...oh boy I *just* missed all the real fun! (sarcasm mode on)
