Talk to any rent stabilized tenant in court for repairs and they will agree that landlords/attorneys use the same narratives. This post is regarding the claim that tenants bother the workers.
During the case, we did follow advice. To quell false “no access” claims we tape and had workers sign in and out (they had no problem, many times, they ask tenants to sign invoices as well). We asked for company license number when advised to. Per the stipulation, the landlords/attorney were supposed to provide tenant’s attorney company information/license five days in advance of work … but then they couldn’t claim we, “ask for papers”.

we gave this one a hard time
