What is the final poop on doorlocks??

Posted by Kerry on September 24, 2000 at 05:43:52:

Refering to rent stabilized in NYC:

Is the landlord allowed to have keys to a tenants locks, top and bottom, or not? Can someone supply me with a fact sheet or presidence on the subject? I have been told that a landlord must have keys to access for emergencies, plumbing leaks, cops, etc.

I have many opinions on the subject and I once believed the landlord was allowed a key to the bottom lock only, and not the top. But I have also heard landlord has rights to both-for emergency reasons.

Thanks in advance.
