I would like to help you with this, but I need more information.
Does your mother live in government subsidized housing?
Who was it that inspected it the first time? The owner of the building?
The second time? The city code inspector?
Please give me more infomration.
The building is government subsidized. The apartment was inspected by a town of hempstead housing authority inspector. It was the same inspector both times
Even if your rent is subsidized, there is no way the city can evict you from this property. Only the building owner or manager can evict you.
The city and give someone so many days to fix something or stop using a drop cord, but it is up to the landlord to fix the things or to make you take out the cords or whatever they are complaining about.
Here is the City website for Hempstead. The code regarding apartments and houses--is contained in there.
