A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to providing residents with copies of notices of violations

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Article 204 of chapter 2 of title 28 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding new sections 28-204.1.2 and 28-204.1.3 to read as follows:

§ 28-204.1.2 Notice of violating conditions outside of occupied dwelling units. An owner must post a copy of a notice of violation that relates to a violating condition outside of an occupied dwelling unit, including in a common area or affecting all residents, of such owner’s building in a conspicuous manner in the building’s lobby until such violation has been closed. In addition, such owner shall post a flyer or pamphlet, created by the department, with information about the adjudication process. Such notice of violation and flyer or pamphlet shall be posted as soon as practicable, but no later than five calendar days after it has been served.

§ 28-204.1.3 Notice to occupants of violating conditions in occupied dwelling units. An owner must distribute a copy of a notice of violation to the resident of an occupied dwelling unit where such violation relates to a violating condition that is present within such dwelling unit, and to residents of occupied dwelling units adjacent to such dwelling unit. In addition, such owner shall provide such residents with a flyer or pamphlet, created by the department, with information about the adjudication process. Such notice of violation and flyer or pamphlet shall be distributed to such occupied dwelling units as soon as practicable, but no later than five calendar days after it has been served.

 

§ 2.  This local law takes effect 180 days after it becomes law, except that the commissioner of buildings may take such measures as are necessary for the implementation of this local law, including the promulgation of rules, before such date.
