Reasonable Access

Hallway of 222 Varet  Street

The Loft Law requires IMD occupants, upon appropriate notice, to provide the owner with reasonable access to their units so that the owner can perform necessary legalization work. Occupants must also provide access, upon appropriate notice, to allow inspections and surveys of IMD units, if the work is required for legalization.

If the tenant does not provide reasonable access after receiving notice, the owner may apply to the Loft Board for an order directing the tenant to give the owner reasonable access to the unit. If a tenant does not comply with a Loft Board order granting the owner access, the owner may bring a court action to evict the tenant.

See 29 RCNY § 2-01(g) for more information.
