Please be aware that Local Law 160 of 2017, which requires property owners to submit a Property Ownership Certification Form to proceed with a permit request for New Building and Alteration-CO permits, is now in effect.
All applications for New Building and Alteration-CO permits for jobs created on or after August 16, 2021 now require the submission of a Property Ownership Certification Form. Government-owned properties and applications filed by tenants are excluded from this requirement.
The purpose of the new form is to allow the DOB to check if the building owner owes $25,000 or more in covered arrears to the City before approving the property for a permit.
For full details on how to file the Property Ownership Certification Form, please refer to the most recent DOB Service Notice, available here.
If you have any questions about the new form or need assistance with violation removal, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
