What DOB Violations Lawyers Handle
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 and ensure the building is in safe standing. The violation gets entered 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 pertinent information is public. So it will appear in a simple property title search. So it is important to fix these issues right away. Or dispute them if you think there is something not right. Open violations 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 a lawyer 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 cases.
