Fixing or repairing is one thing, moving someone's private stuff around is another. One man's garbage is anothers treasures. No matter what a person owns, even if it is a pile of old newspaper, the landlord can not make subjective decisions about what is trash and what isn't. A repair is a repair, but making the decision to what should go and what should stay can not be left up to a landlord. And you can't just start moving someone's private stuff around. The police can't even do that, why do you think a landlord can.
A landlord CAN NOT enter into a persons apartment and clean it up unless the city has found the apartment in violation. I say again, Thank Goodness!! How would you like your landlord to decide that your apartment is too dirty and enter and start moving your stuff around!! This person has rights as well as you do, a landlord is not an objective enough person to simply enter an apartment without some notice from a regulatory agency. It will take the landlord time and effort to get permission to do any clean up. You make it sound as if they can just enter the place, clean it up, and leave.
Why you would think that it is okay for a landlord to just enter this person's apartment and touch anything of theirs strikes me as odd.
