Building inspector do.
I was working in a condo project when a building inspector came to
inspect a basement that had a permit . Two condo down they were finishing
their basement and had not pulled a permit . The BI came to talk to us and
talk to the contractor. Before he went to talk to the homeowner . So the question
came up can he enter private property without permission. And he said no.
The company I work for was building their office in Birmingham Mi. When a
building inspector pry a piece of wood off a basement window and in crawled in.
Someone saw this and called the police and they escorted him off the property.
The police told him he was trespassing.
Should have boarded the window back up when he was in there and then called the cops for an unsafe entrance
Township accessors can't even come on your property without your consent period. That's the law. There is quite a few around here that are upset that they can't do what they please when they please but they also know if they get caught they are going to be arrested and sued for it.
Lots of large properties with sprawling developments require inspectors to check in main office, then a company rep escorts inspector to point of inspection. Then unless more inspections are due right then it is time to go. This is done for safety of inspector and the fishing trips they tend to go on. No check in or escort no inspection, this may hold up a project but fishing trips cost money and worse holdups. Too many failed inspection by subs gets them replaced. Just dug up a septic for improper installation, failure should have been caught in inspection less than 6 months ago, no recourse with B&Z even though he passed work.
Private or not if a permit is pulled an inspector can access and can inspect any work being preformed under that permit.
If no permit they can and will issue a stop work order until a set of plans have been approved and proper permits have been secured.
There's no way work would continue on any job where an inspector was denied entry to inspect work, there's way too much liability involved to do so.
They would need a probable cause to inspect the property.
google earth is the accesors friend. The eye in the sky can see a lot of what you are trying to hide.
