NYC Co-op Question
I just found out from my super that repairs have to be made to the gas line in my building. Work is to start next week and will involve breaking down walls in my newly renovated kitchen. What are my rights? Do I have to allow access? My gas line hasn't had any problems and has remained in service. The person who lives two floors above me discovered a leak and his gas was shut off in early May. Now the gas pipe on the entire line must be replaced. I haven't seen any paperwork or permits about this matter. Moreover, I don't trust my super to return my kitchen to its original state when the work is done. I'm going to take lots of pictures before the work starts, of course. And I still have all my receipts. Is there anything I can do to protect myself? Any advice is much appreciated.
