Default Main disconnect on roof

I took over a job this week started by another electrician not licensed . I have many pictures of some fine quality violations underway. The building has an existing 3 meter service, electrician from many moons ago ran load side of the meter up and across 2 floor soffit to a main disconnect atop of a 1st floor flat roof, from disconnect, he ran 25' inside structure to panel. Is this existing disconnect a legitimate location ? Yes or No.....Without looking at it my inspector says no. At first i said no but after review I have turned to yes. Roof is accesible by stairs.

Sounds compliant to me other than if the seperate apartments are not full firestopped between units, then you would have a grouping issue

It's all 2 hour rated finish between construction area and 2nd fl units. The two Apt units have main breaker panels inside them.
