- Immediately Hazardous – Class 1 – Can cause immediate harm
- Major(ly) Hazardous – Class 2 – Are not immediately hazardous but still harmful to safety, life and health
- Less(er) Hazardous – Class 3 – Least hazardous for life, safety and health but still a serious concern
How to correct your OATH violation
Performing an OATH violations removal requires completing three steps.
1. Read your summons/violation letter
Make sure to read your violation letter. The letter will include the property owner’s name and address as well as the condition that needs to be corrected. It will also contain a date by which the condition must be repaired as well as a hearing date. If you’re not sure that your building has a violation, you can look up your building in the BIS system.
2. Correct the Condition
Once you determine what is wrong with your building, you must hire the appropriate contractor. Make sure the contractor is licensed, bonded and legally allowed to perform work in NYC. Once you hire the contractor, they will read your letter, determine the best course of action for correcting the problem, pull all the required permits and fix the problem in accordance with all current NYC building codes. Your contractor should also provide you with the information you need to submit to the NYC DOB, including any pictures.
3. Submit the required paperwork to the NYC DOB
Lastly, submit the paperwork to the NYC DOB, including a Certificate of Correction. It’s important to note that you may still have to attend your hearing date even if you correct the violation. Therefore, it’s best to double-check the date and make inquiries as to whether or not you need to attend.
