I am going to revisit this : Our coop requires residents to retain plumbers for work inside the walls as per NYC law. However, sometimes, when there is an in-the-wall pipe issue, such as a toilet lead bend, they try to get the Super to do it. He is not licensed and often does a faulty job. Can we refuse him access to our apts for this kind of work on the basis it is violation of NY laws, coop alteration rules and presents a hazard and demand a qualified plumber? The coop can deny access to unlicensed workers so why can't we?Join the Conversation Comments (1)
