Landlord v. Tenant: January 2013
DOB Violations: Landlord Exempt from Filing Local Law 11 Report
DOB issued a violation notice to landlord for failing to file an amended report to confirm the correction of unsafe building facade conditions described in the initial report he filed under Local Law 11 of 1998. Landlord claimed that because the building was no more than six stories in height, it wasn't subject to these reporting requirements. The building had a cellar and five stories and was registered with HPD as six stories. The ALJ ruled for landlord and dismissed the violation.
