Thank you. It is a rent-regulated apartment in New York City.
Is the landlord's letter still effective to bring a holdover eviction, even if they inspected without notice? The contract seems to require 5 days notice for inspection.

For TV cable, I have informed Time Warner of this issue.
Besides, are there ways to seek any compensation for unlawful
inconveniences we have suffered since two years ago?

I appreciate your cordial assistance.

: If this apartment is in New York City, you really have little to worry about, especially if you are rent regulated. If not, the landlord can generally refuse to renew the lease when it expires. The landlord's letter may have been a notice of default / notice to cure required by your lease. If you don't cure the alleged default, the landlord would have go to housing court to bring a holdover eviction proceeding against you. Even if the judge found that you violated a substantial obligation of your lease, you would be given ten days to cure the default under Section 753(4) of the Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law [RPAPL 753(4)].

: You should complain to Time Warner Cable and to the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) if your landlord won't let Time Warner in the building. New York State's Executive Law requires that a landlord give access to the cable company, and this law has been upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court [Loretto v. TelePrompTer].
