A Boise apartment complex that evicted all of its residents for a remodel has now been ordered by the city to stop the work.
The Glenbrook apartment complex received the notice from the city after they failed to obtain the proper permits.
Last year, the property management company gave out 30 day notices to residents. At the time, they told On Your Side the property owners wished to remodel the complex and raise rents.
The city said they were working on things like electrical, external staircases, and other things that are fundamental to the operation of the building without proper clearance from the city.
The city said it is imperative to insure the safety of Boise residents. 
"It insures that we have a safe viable building that is up to specifications according to city code and makes sure that when residents do finally move back in that they can understand that all the laws, all the safety, all the ADA requirements and all of those kinds of things were followed up with," said Mike Journee, spokesman for the City of Boise. 
The city of Boise said they are working with the architect to get the permits in place. 
No word on when work will begin again.
