: It's a four apartment building (four floors). Since I posted this notice, we've
: been "accidentally" locked out of our apartment. Also, the landlord now wants
: us to let in a real estate agent to look around. Should I let this agent in, or
: wait until I've talked to a lawyer? I plan to call a lawyer tomorrow, since
: the agent wants in by the next two days.

On a lockout, call the police and see the illegal eviction page on the
web site (assuming NYC). In other places it usually is a civil
offense. Don't talk to a patrolman -- they usually don't know the law
and refuse to enforce it if they did. Go to the precinct Captain or higher,
and if you anticipate this happening, let the Captain know ahead of time
this is a possibility. Call your local officials as well as they can
nudge the police. As for letting in a real estate agent, generally
you must do so, but you can demand advance notice (usually 24-48 hours),
in writing explaining exactly what they wish access for, and it should be
at a reasonable time. You don't need ot let them in every day. Make them
work around your schedule, but you need to be reasonable as well.
