Environmental Control Board Violations
Environmental Control Board violations involve building code violations. Common ECB violations include plumbing that was not performed by a licensed plumber, not pulling permits and water, gas or electrical work that is deemed illegal. These violations are classified as Class 1, Class 2 or Class 3. Class 1 violations pose an immediate health risk to all occupants in the dwelling. Class 2 violations are considered major, and Class 3 violations are classified as lesser.
When you receive a violation, you must have the problem remedied by the appropriate licensed, bonded and insured professional. For plumbing violations, you would need to hire a licensed master plumber who is familiar with clearing ECB violations. After the permits have been pulled and the work has been completed, the correction work must be certified by the Environmental Control Board.
ECB Court Hearings
ECB hearings are handled by OATH, which is independent from New York’s state court system. This independent administrative law court is responsible for handling summonses that involve quality of life or the habitability of buildings, IE: building code violations.
If you have a violation that includes an ECB court hearing, it is mandatory that you respond to the summons before the court date, make an appearance or have an authorized representative make an appearance for you. Failure to appear at your ECB court hearings, respond to the summons or pay your fine could result in fines of up to $25,000.
