What are HPD violations and who issues them?

HPD Violations

NYC HPD violations refer to violations issued by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD). The HPD is responsible for enforcing housing maintenance standards and regulations to ensure that residential buildings in New York City are safe and habitable for occupants. HPD violations typically pertain to issues such as lack of heat or hot water, mold, vermin infestations, lead paint hazards, inadequate fire safety measures, and other conditions that violate the city’s Housing Maintenance Code.

When HPD inspectors identify violations during their inspections or in response to tenant complaints, they issue violation notices to property owners or landlords, detailing the specific violations and outlining the required corrective actions. Property owners are typically given a specified period to address the violations and bring the property into compliance with the Housing Maintenance Code.

Failure to address HPD violations in a timely manner can result in fines, legal action, and other enforcement measures by the HPD. It’s important for property owners and landlords to promptly address HPD violations to ensure the safety and well-being of their tenants and to avoid potential penalties.
