DOB releases new tenant protection plan notice form

Posted on July 13, 2018

Rules & Regulations

The DOB has released a form to be used when giving tenants notice of the Tenant Protection Plan (TPP) as required by Local Law 154 of 2017.  This form must be used starting July 18, 2018.

28-104.8.4.3 Notice to occupants

Upon issuance of a permit for work containing a tenant protection plan, the owner shall (i) distribute a notice regarding such plan to each occupied dwelling unit or (ii) post a notice regarding such plan in a conspicuous manner in the building lobby, as well as on each floor within ten feet of the elevator, or in a building where there is no elevator, within ten feet of or in the main stairwell on such floor. The notice shall be in a form created or approved by the department and shall include:

  1. A statement that occupants of the building may obtain a paper copy of such plan from the owner and may access such plan on the department website;
  2. The name and contact information for the site safety manager, site safety coordinator or superintendent of construction required by section 3301.3 of the New York city building code, as applicable, or, if there is no site safety manager, site safety coordinator or superintendent of construction, the name and contact information of the owner of the building or such owner’s designee; and
  3. A statement that occupants of the building may call 311 to make complaints about the work.

This law has been in effect since December 28, 2017 and owners are already required to provide notice. However, last month DOB released an approved form to provide notice to tenants that meet the requirements of that law.  This form must be used starting July 18, 2018.

The form can be found here.
