Correctly Removing Building Violations
When you receive department of building violations, it is important that you act quickly to resolve the problem and restore your NYC building permit before you incur expensive civil penalties.
The Importance of Building Violation Removal
When you have HDP and ECB building violations, you must correct them in a timely manner. All building violations, including plumbing system and gas line violations, have civil penalties attached to them, and those fines and penalties only increase if you fail to perform the building violation removal within the given time frame. This is because the violations found by an inspector often have health and safety consequences for all the occupants of your building if they are left to worsen.
This is especially true for incorrectly installed or leaking gas and water plumbing lines. Incorrectly installed, maintained or placed gas lines can lead to fires and explosions. When water lines leak, they can create mold, including toxic black mold, and mildew, which are health hazards.
Correcting Building Violations
Corecting building violations starts with reading your violation notice. Determine what building codes your residential or commercial building does not meet and start taking steps to remedy the problems.
If the violation is minor, like a Class 3 or Class 2 violation, often times you can avoid a court hearing and/or financial penalties if you admit to the violation and immediately correct it. If you must appear in court for your Class 3 or Class 2 violation, paying your fine and admitting to the violation may result in the extension of your compliance time by 75 days.
Of course, you must always resolve the violation and provide proof that the violation has been resolved in order to restore your building’s occupancy permit. If you fail to correct the violations, you could receive additional fines, have your building’s occupation permit revoked, be unable to qualify for loans or mortgages and be unable to sell your property.
