Properties can be cited with violations of various types if found to be non-compliant with the many codes, laws, and ordinances that regulate building usage and maintenance within the five boroughs. This tool focuses primarily on violations issued by three authorities: Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), Department of Buildings (DOB), and Environmental Control Board (ECB).

Pursuant to New York City’s Housing Maintenance Code, the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) issues violations against conditions in rental dwelling units that have been verified to violate New York City Housing Maintenance Code (HMC) or the New York State Multiple Dwelling Law (MDL). The New York City Department of Buildings (DOB) issues various types of violations pertaining to properties found to be non-compliant with the city's Administrative Code, Building Code, Local Laws, etc. which may also trigger an Environmental Control Board (ECB) Violation. ECB Violations carry a penalty amount and require attendence of a hearing at the city's Office of Administrative Trials & Hearings (OATH). In some cases, recipients can correct the noted deficiencies by a specified "Cure Date" to avoid penalty.

To get a summary of all currently outstanding HPD, DOB, and ECB and OATH Violations issued on a property, along with scanned copies of available ECB & OATH Tickets, search the property here.
Note: Properties with many violations may take longer to analyze.
