We provide next services:

  • Assistance with obtaining a Certificate of Correction for an ECB violation.

    An ECB violation notifies that a property does not fulfill a provision of the NYC Building Code and/or NYC Zoning Resolution. To solve the ECB violations, you need to apply to the Environmental Control Board, an administrative law court, where a civil penalty may be imposed. However, the violations are entered against the property in the Department of Buildings Information System (BIS).

    The solution of an ECB violation stipulates two obligations:
    1. to pay a civil penalty and correct the violating condition,
    2. to petition a Certificate of Correction with the Department of Buildings at its main office by mail or in person.

    For certifying correction, file a Certificate of Correction form with proof that the condition was changed. In case of accepting the proof, the property’s record in BIS will display that the violation was corrected and certificate accepted. If a violation is dismissed at ECB, it will keep the status as “open” in BIS.

  • Registration of a contractor with the Licensing Unit to obtain a tracking number.
