Owning a property where two or more families reside in the bustling city of New York comes with its own set of challenges. One of the most crucial aspects for property owners to be vigilant about is compliance with the regulations set by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) regulations.

HPD, although perhaps lesser-known compared to some other city departments, plays a vital role in ensuring housing standards and safety. In New York City, buildings with two or more families are required to register with HPD. However, it's important to note that compliance with HPD regulations is mandatory only for buildings with three or more families.

Navigating the processes involved with HPD can be intricate, often requiring back-and-forth communication between their downtown and uptown offices. Therefore, property owners must stay informed and proactive to ensure their buildings meet the necessary standards and regulations, thereby contributing to the overall well-being of their tenants and the community.

Further definition specifies residential buildings that contain three or more units which include apartment buildings, condominiums, and cooperative buildings. Owners of multiple dwellings are required to register each of their properties with HPD annually. The registration process involves providing information about the building, including the number of units, the names of individuals responsible for the building, and contact information.

HPD violations in NYC are tracked within the Building Information System (BIS), which profiles all city properties, detailing jobs, filings, complaints, and inspections, alongside a directory of licensed tradespeople.

Regular property inspections and compliance with HPD regulations are essential to prevent future violations and ensure clearance."Over three decades, we've mastered the art of navigating the complex building permit and code compliance landscape," said Tom Walsh, who manages Burnham Nationwide’s New York Office.

To address HPD violations effectively, property owners should thoroughly review the violation notice, prioritize safety concerns, document the issue, adhere to correction timelines, and execute necessary repairs. It's essential to certify the corrective action with HPD, maintain detailed repair records, attend hearings if needed, conduct regular inspections to prevent future violations and verify clearance of the violation with HPD.
