Correctly Removing Building Violations

When you receive department of building violations, it is important that you act quickly to resolve the problem and restore your NYC building permit before you incur expensive civil penalties.

The Importance of Building Violation Removal

When you have OATH violations or HDP and ECB building violations, you must correct them in a timely manner. All building violations, including plumbing system and gas line violations, have civil penalties attached to them, and those fines and penalties only increase if you fail to perform the building violation removal within the given time frame. This is because the violations found by an inspector often have health and safety consequences for all the occupants of your building if they are left to worsen.

This is especially true for incorrectly installed or leaking gas and water plumbing lines. Incorrectly installed, maintained or placed gas lines can lead to fires and explosions. When water lines leak, they can create mold, including toxic black mold, and mildew, which are health hazards. If floors are becoming damper then usual and you are worried about the development of black mold find some professional advice for damp floors. Avoiding the issue all together can save everyone time and money. This could lead to the negatively affected party seeking advice on nyc property violations if it isn’t dealt with appropriately when they are faced with them.

If the water in question is leaking onto your bathroom floor and you haven’t found the source yet, carefully go through your bathroom inch by inch, checking all edges and empty space. More than likely it could be coming from your shower/bath, the sealants may have eroded leaving the water to leak out of the shower area/under the bath. As stated before, you will need to clean this up as black mold and mildew can physically affect you. You then need to move onto the proper practices of stopping this happening again by replacing all sealants and baths/shower doors and have them inspected to make sure they are completely tight. A seamless glass shower may be the right choice and it could be easier to clean each time, and if you have a bath, clean underneath and reseal tightly. Bear in mind that for you to stop this happening again you will need to be vigilant about cleaning and notice any cracks that form on the floor or otherwise.

Correcting Building Violations

Corecting building violations starts with reading your violation notice. Determine what building codes your residential or commercial building does not meet and start taking steps to remedy the problems.

If the violation is minor, like a Class 3 or Class 2 violation, often times you can avoid a court hearing and/or financial penalties if you admit to the violation and immediately correct it. If you must appear in court for your Class 3 or Class 2 violation, paying your fine and admitting to the violation may result in the extension of your compliance time by 75 days.

Of course, you must always resolve the violation and provide proof that the violation has been resolved in order to restore your building’s occupancy permit. You should also seek out a proper tradesfolk to do the job to ensure it is correctly resolved. Make sure you investigate fully before you hire a peachtree city plumber. Check their credentials, training, and see if you can track their prior work. If you fail to correct the violations, you could receive additional fines, have your building’s occupation permit revoked, be unable to qualify for loans or mortgages and be unable to sell your property.
