Dealing with Mold Violations
Within all five boroughs of New York City, Including Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Bronx, and Staten Island, landlords must comply with the NYC Local Law 55 and the Issuance of Mold Violations by HPD/Department of Buildings. This law ensures landlords do not ignore mold issues and treat them as a serious problem, as it can severely affect the health of their tenants.
Here at New York Mold Specialist, we have the resources to help landlords clear such violations, being that we are licensed Mold Assessors and Mold Remediation Contractors by the New York State. We have a coherent and clear protocol to clear a New York City Mold Violation, which is as follows:
- To begin the process, a preliminary mold inspection must be performed by a licensed Mold Assessment Company. The inspection tests for mold visually and manually, so the exact causation and description of the mold can be understood coherently, as a step to ultimately clear the violation.
- Once the inspection report is compiled, it is then forwarded to another licensed Mold Remediation Contractor, such as ourselves. The report is evaluated and a plan for the Mold Remediation is created. The Remediation Contractor who created this plan will file a filing receipt with the DEP to notify them of the remediation, prior to start. Once the customer, such as yourself, approve the plan, the Remediation begins.
- As the remediation is completed, both the Mold Assessor and the Mold Remediator will provide the landlord with the necessary written affidavits which testify to the completion of the remediation.
- These forms, along with any additional necessary documents, can then be submitted by the landlord to the NYC Department of Buildings/ HPD. After all, the violation can be cleared.
