Hi all, I was wondering if anyone could answer this. Do a downstairs apartment need to provide direct access to a panel box?
I'm renovating a downstairs apartment that has both the upstairs, and apartment, panel boxes alongside each other in the laundry room. Right now there is a door from the apartment going to the laundry room that we would like to get rid of.

Reason: added more info
Tenants MUST have access to their circuit breakers.
I'm sure local codes will vary, but this is a general rule.
Sometimes I feel like if I answer any more questions it is like someone trying to climb over a fence to jump off a bridge and me giving them a boost.
