DOB Plumbing Violations Removal – NYC

 In Uncategorized

DOB Plumbing Violations Removal Have you recently run afoul of New York City’s building codes? In an effort to expand the number of units in your tenant building, you may have been tempted to renovate areas of your building that were previously uninhabitable so that you can earn more money. Unfortunately, if you renovate the wrong spaces or renovate them incorrectly, you may find yourself paying more for your renovations than you anticipated. This is because you’ll have to pay the Department of Buildings (DOB) money in the form of fines and fees and pay additional contractors to fix the mistakes.

How Do Building Owners End up on the DOB’s Violation List?

Most times, it’s purely accidental. The building owner either hired the wrong contractor or failed to perform the initial steps required to ensure that the space could be renovated into a habitable unit. The owner may have also chosen to defer maintenance on the water and gas lines. When deferred maintenance leads to water and gas leaks, it can create hazardous conditions that lead to getting a DOB plumbing violation.

1. Renovating the Wrong Space

If you were hoping to turn your basement space into a livable unit, make sure you hired someone to determine that the space is a basement not a cellar. Of course, you may be wondering what the differences are between a cellar and a basement. A cellar has more than 50 percent of its exterior walls below ground while a basement has more than 50 percent of its exterior walls above ground.

2. Hired the Wrong Contractor

While you can save money on renovations by hiring a handyman, don’t hire one for the plumbing, HVAC or electrical work. These three types of renovations and additions must be performed by a licensed contractor who has the ability to pull permits for the work being performed. If you need additional types of work performed, always check to see if a contractor is required and if permits need to be pulled.

3. Maintenance can Lead to Hazardous Conditions

Never put off plumbing, electrical or HVAC work. Ignoring small problems can lead to hazardous conditions that will be reported either by your tenants or by a visitor. Remember, tenants have rights, and there are certain expectations when someone rents an apartment from you.
