Frequently asked questions
What is an HPD violation? > An HPD violation is issued by the NYC Department of Housing Preservation & Development in response to your alleged noncompliance with the housing code. Upon receipt of a complaint, for example, the HPD sends an inspector to examine your property. Once evidence of the infraction is established, the HPD will issue a Notice of Violation.
What kind of HPD violation is issued for mold problems? > The presence of mold in your property violates NYC Local Law 55 of 2018, a.k.a. Asthma Free Housing Act, which requires owners of buildings with three or more apartments to ensure that their tenants are safe from pests and mold. Mold violations fall under three classifications: First, a Class A violation means your mold problem is non-hazardous and affects less than 10 square feet. This violation needs to be rectified within 90 days. Second, a Class B means the violation is hazardous. This is issued when the infestation covers more than 10 square feet but does not exceed 30 square feet. This problem needs correction within 60 days. Third, a Class C violation is issued when the mold problem affects more than 30 square feet of your property. The mold infestation must be cured within 21 days.

What is a lead-based paint violation? > Based on the new rules adopted by the HPD on December 1, 2021, in response to Local Law 66 of 2019, a lead-based paint violation is issued whenever a property contains paint that has lead content that measures at 0.5 mg/cm2 or greater based on laboratory analysis or an XRF instrument with an approved PCS and was programmed to perform at a testing action level of 0.5 mg/cm2. Local Law 1 of 2004 requires all landlords to identify and solve all lead-based hazards in their property where a young child is present. Remediation needs to be done using trained personnel and safe working methods.
What are lead-based hazards? > Lead-based paint hazards include the following: 1. Dust from paint peeling off painted surfaces 2. Paint chipping from walls, ceilings, windows, and doors 3. Cracked and damaged lead-based paint 4. Painted surfaces that stick and rub together (E.g., door and door frame) 5. Sills and rails scratched or chewed on by kids
How would I know if my property has lead-based paint? > New York banned the use of lead in all paint manufacturing in 1960. This means older buildings most likely have traces of lead in their paint. You urgently need professional lead inspection and remediation if: 1. Your property was constructed before January 1, 1960 2. Your property has rental apartments occupied by tenants A 3. child under 6 years old lives on your property or regularly visits the place for more than 10 hours per week. Lead is a toxic metal that is harmful, especially to children. As a property owner, you are responsible for keeping your tenants safe from hazards caused by lead. IMPORTANT: As of February 2021, Local Law 1 of 2004 applies to one- and two-unit buildings occupied by tenants.
What are NYC DOH violations? > NYC DOH violations refer to infractions of public health policies implemented by The NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. The Department supports and upholds Local Laws 55 and 61 for all property owners for the health of all tenants in dwelling units across the city.
What is NYC local law 31, and how does it apply to my HPD violation? > Local Law 31 requires property owners to hire lead inspectors and risk assessors certified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to test a dwelling unit for the presence of lead-based paint. These professionals must be independent of the property owner and should not be connected with the company in charge of remediating the lead-based paint hazard.
