Got a fix a ticket for weed abatement but they want to inspect my home. The code inforcement officer has harassed me before and my neighbor calls and complains on all houses in the area. Neighbor is mad I won't sell my home to him.
Depends on the facts, but if you received an order to abate your weeds, then they have to give you a notice of date on which they will come in to check whether you have cut your weeds or not. But you don't have to let them inside the house if it is only for weed abatement. You can let them in through the side gate into your backyard. If it is your front yard, then they can't go in because they can check whether you have taken care of the weeds from outside.
