Reminder: Reinstatement Fees
To save everyone headaches down the line, we wanted to take a moment to remind our family and friends of the DOB’s regulations regarding reinstatement fees. See below:
Plans, permits and applications are not valid after their expiration date. You may be required to re-file or pay a reinstatement fee to complete a job after the plans, permits or applications have expired.
Expired, Approved Plans Without Permit Issued:
|Less than one year since approval, regardless of status||No Reinstatement Fee|
|More than one year, but less than two years, in approved status with no code/zoning changes during the period||$100 Reinstatement Fee|
|More than two years, job is expired and cannot be reinstated||Job must be re-filed|
Expired, Approved Jobs/Applications With Permit Issued:
|Less than one year since permit expiration||No Reinstatement fee|
|More than one year since permit expiration and applicant documents that action* was taken during this period||No Reinstatement Fee|
|More than one year since permit expiration, but less than two years with no code/zone changes during this period||$100.00 Reinstatement Fee|
|More than two years with only work sign-offs required||$100.00 Reinstatement Fee|
|More than two years with code/zone change during this period (e.g., job application was originally filed under 1968 Code and job must be filed in 2014 Code.)||Refile job application and pay full filing fee|
