Compliance Deadlines

What's New For 2024

NEW Parapet Inspections

Starting in January 2024, property owners must observe/inspect their parapets to identify and correct hazards. . Building owners will be required to hire a qualified professional or someone capable of identifying such hazards. This rule will apply to all buildings fronting the right of way, regardless of height, EXCEPT for detached 1- or 2-family homes. The observations do NOT need to be submitted to the DOB, but reports must be kept for at least 6 years and be available upon request. You have until December 31 to complete this observation.

NEW Penalties for Failure to File a Statement of Registration

As per LL71, any person required to and who fails to file a statement of registration will be subject to civil penalties between $500 and $5000 (depending on the dwelling size). Plus, anyone who files a false statement will be subject to penalties between $750 and $5000.

XRF Inspections

While technically not new for 2024 (this went into effect in 2020), the deadline to fulfill this requirement is August 9, 2025, which means you should already be taking care of it in 2024 (if you haven’t done so yet). As per this new law, ALL units must have an XRF inspection by this date or within one year of a child under six moving in, whichever comes sooner.
