Part of fake heiress Anna ‘Delvey’ Sorokin’s East Village apartment block has been condemned by New York City officials.
The fraudster, 32, is on house arrest at a $4,250-a-month fifth-floor Manhattan apartment, where she has thrown parties and art exhibitions since she was arrested for overstaying her visa – just weeks after being released from prison.
Not long ago Sorokin, who was immortalized in Netflix’s Inventing Anna, was used to spending her nights at chic hotels such as The Standard, High Line where rooms range from $351 a night to $2,097 suites.
In stark contrast to her luxurious lifestyle, a ‘partial vacate’ notice has been pinned up on the downstairs doorway of her apartment building, according to Page Six.
It states: ‘The Department of Buildings has determined that conditions within this premises are imminently perilous to life.

‘This premises has been vacated and re-entry is prohibited until such conditions have been eliminated to the satisfaction of the department. Violators of this… order are subject to arrest.’
Sources close to Sorokin have told the publication that only the garbage chute is out of commission.
They claim that the ‘partial’ part of the vacate order means she nor the other residents of the block will be able to use the chute until it is fixed.
A notice from the landlord reads: ‘Please be advised that the vacate order posted on the building is for the garbage shaft area. We will temporarily move the trash from that location until the area is fixed.’
Russian-born Sorokin spent two years in prison after being charged with grand larceny and theft of services.
Despite being sentenced to four years in jail in April 2019, she was released on good behavior and enjoyed a brief spell of freedom until she was re-arrested for overstaying her visa.
During her time on house arrest, where she is required to remain in her home and must wear an ankle monitor at all times, Sorokin has been spotted several times posing for photoshoots and speaking to the media at her East Village flat.

She does not let the restriction stop her social life, saying last year that she will bring her elite circles of friends to her for intimate dinner parties each month.
Sorokin describes her weekly visit to the parole office as her ‘Tinder’ because everyone is always asking if she’s a model or famous, she told The Cut at the time.
Her house arrest is indefinite and she is not allowed access to social media or her own credit card and must have an accountant.
In December, it was revealed that the fake heiress was punished while serving time at the Albion Correctional Facility in upstate New York for ‘tampering’ with the unflattering tan-green outfit she was forced to wear.
A source close to her said that she was ‘just trying to be fashionable’ but fell afoul of the rules and was barred from doing any recreation or getting packages for 10 days as punishment for her transgression.
The source said that Sorokin tailored her prison clothes to ‘fit her better since they were too big and baggy.’
In a separate incident, Sorokin lost her privileges and was put under lockdown for two weeks after giving false information to a prison guard and disobeying an order.
The incidents show that Sorokin had a bumpy landing after being convicted four years ago of financial crimes for stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from hotels, private jet companies and her best friend.

In March, DailyMail.com exclusively revealed that Sorokin’s former lawyer collapsed in court and had to be taken away in an ambulance.
Sorokin is facing off against her former attorney Audrey Thomas in Manhattan Civil Court, who she claims is withholding court records that the convicted fraudster needs to fight her deportation case.
As proceedings got underway, Thomas broke down in tears, crying out: ‘My heart is hurting me! I need an ambulance!’
