The Building Commissioner and/or law enforcement officers, in addition to any other authority vested in them, are hereby authorized, upon presentation of proper credentials, to enter and inspect any private property or place and to inspect any report or records at any reasonable time when granted permission by the owner or some other person with apparent authority to act for the owner. When permission is refused or cannot be obtained, a search warrant may be obtained from a court of competent jurisdiction upon showing of probable cause that a violation of this chapter exists. Such inspection may include the administration of any necessary tests.
