Int. No. 155-A

 

By Council Members Carr, Borelli, Ariola, Holden, Dinowitz, Yeger, Feliz, Gennaro and Brooks-Powers

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to permit filing fees for one-, two-, and three-family dwellings damaged by a fire

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

Section 1. Article 112 of chapter 1 of title 28 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 28-112.13 to read as follows:

§ 28-112.13 Permit filing fees for one-, two- or three-family dwellings damaged by a fire. For a one-, two- or three-family dwelling that has been damaged as a result of a fire, no filing fee that would otherwise be required to be paid to the department by this code or the rules of the department shall be required to be paid, in connection with a permit for work that is necessary to address the damage to such dwelling that resulted from such a fire, which may include a construction defect discovered following such fire, and which shall be certified to the department by the applicant for such permit. If a construction defect is discovered at such dwelling following such fire, the department shall not charge filing fees for other dwellings in the same homeowner’s association or cooperative association to correct the same construction defect at such dwellings where such situation is certified to the department by the applicant for such permit. The department, with relevant agencies, shall conduct outreach regarding these provisions in the designated citywide languages, as defined in section 23-1101.

 

§ 2. This local law takes effect in 120 days.
