What Are HPD Violations in NYC?
The building’s maintenance and repair status is indicated by HPD violations. In NYC, all structures must be kept up-to-date, and worn-out or damaged systems must be fixed or replaced in compliance with the city’s construction regulations. For instance, the landlord or building owner cannot allow a pipe in your building to slowly leak as black mold can develop inside walls and on floors, which is dangerous for one’s health.
Some of the reasons for NYC Department of Buildings Plumbing Violations removal include the following:
- In one or more units, there is a lack of hot water.
- Having leaking water lines.
- Having a boiler that has been neglected.
- Having a boiler that is malfunctioning or not working at all.
- Using improper kitchen and bathroom fixtures
- Making unauthorized improvements and repairs to the structure.
- Installing plumbing and fixtures where it is prohibited by NYC building codes.
- Approving the replacement and repair of water and gas pipes without a permit.
How to Prevent from Needing HPD Plumbing Violation Removal in NYC
The good news is that there are steps you can take to prevent from receiving an HPD violation and requiring immediate HPD violation removal for plumbing maintenance:
- Swiftly addressing all of your requests for plumbing maintenance.
- Make sure to only hire master plumbers who are licensed.
- Check first to see if installing such devices is permitted in NYC before upgrading or adding pipes and water fixtures.
- To ensure that your building complies with all NYC building codes, get it frequently inspected.
