An EVG reader shared a note from his landlord ("not one of the usual suspects") about repairs taking place to the building's intercom ... Seems fairly routine, but the workers need access to each apartment... per the note, the residents must either be at home or leave their keys with the super... if not ...
... "we will be forced to drill your lock and provide you with new keys" ... presumably to the new locks that will magically appear after being drilled off...
The reader asks, Is this legal? (And for the record, the reader says the landlord/management company is generally cool.)
Seems kinda extreme? (And yes, looking forward to the inevitable, "If you don't want the landlord drilling off your lock, then buy your own apartment/building" comment.)
We often get reader queries ... asking for help with, say, donating clothes or books ... or finding an East Village-based caterer... If you have a question for the masses, then try the EV Grieve email...
