My landlord in D.C. claimed there is an emergency leaking issue from an apartment below and asking to enter my unit.
This happened more than a week ago. Meanwhile, I checked via video with the super and found no leakage on my end. I also requested multiple times for evidence (photos) to show the severity level, if it is caused by my unit, and if that unit is in a non-livable condition, as well as provided video check again with a plumber.
They rejected all my inquires and just let an attorney send an email stating they are not required to send any photos of another tenantís unit as a condition of obtaining access to my unit to resolve an issue affecting other units. If I do not let them in, they will file an emergency motion to seek access.
I already gave notice terminating my lease in a month and do not want to let them in without any proof of emergency under the pandemic situation.
Will they be able to file the motion and obtain permission to enter? Will the entire process (including hearing) take longer than a month? Will a result of the motion against me affect my personal record in any way?
Thank you in advance.
