Owner Notification Required for Tenant Protection Plan Job
The Department of Buildings (DOB) implemented a new system for owners to notify the DOB prior to beginning work that requires a Tenant Protection Plan (TPP) on May 17, 2021.
TPPs are required for any building where construction is taking place and a dwelling unit will remain occupied during construction. The TPP must be submitted prior to permit issuance.
For applications filed in DOB NOW:
- The owner must submit notification in DOB NOW: Build at least 72 hours before starting work requiring a TPP
- Submit the notification by logging into DOB NOW. From the dashboard, select +Notifications, then Tenant Protection Plan
For applications filed in BIS:
- The owner must submit the online Owner Notification Form at least 72 hours before starting work requiring a TPP
Owners must continue to notify occupants of work requiring a TPP, see our prior newsletter for more information.
