What a DOB Violations Attorney Handles
A DOB violation is a notice that a property is not in compliance with some provision of applicable law. These violations include an order from the Commissioner of the Department of Buildings to correct the violating condition. Ultimately this is all to ensure the building is in safe condition. The violation gets filed against the property in the Department’s Buildings Information System (BIS). Once entered, it must be corrected before a new or amended Certificate of Occupancy (CO) can be obtained. In other terms, nothing else can happen with the building until the owners fix the issue.
Every Department of Buildings violation and all its information is available to the public. So it will appear in a simple property title search, which means it is important to fix these issues right away. Or if not fix them, then dispute them. An open violation can prevent an owner from selling or refinancing. The Department will not issue new or amended Certificates of Occupancy or Letters of Completion when DOB violations remain active. So if you decide to fight these violations, then it is important to have an attorney who understands the DOB laws. When you turn to the Law Office of M. Daniel Bach, you’ll be getting someone who can expertly handle a wide range of administrative hearings and cases.
