Hello: This is Phillipsesq. Welcome to JustAnswer! I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.
The City can fine the property owner until the property owner provides access to the premises. So, the City can do more than issue warning. The City can levy fines until the property owner complies.
A former Tenant has no legal standing to compel the City to do anything with regard to the building.
Thank you for the clarification. The only thing you can do is to keep calling the City's Inspections Department to see when they are finally going to have access to the building. You cannot force the City to take action against the property owner. The City already has tools to force the property owner to give the inspectors access to the premises.
I have nothing else to add. So, I will opt out to give another Attorney the opportunity to further assist you.
