Landlord Didn't Certify Correction of 10-Year-Old DOB Vacate Order

LVT Number: #30793

DOB issued two violation notices to landlord for failure to comply with a prior order and to file a certificate of correction. In 2009, the DOB had issued a vacate order for the apartment after a fire. But recently an inspector had found that the third-floor apartment was occupied with beds and personal belongings in two bedrooms, the living room, and kitchen. Landlord stated that he believed that the 2009 vacate order had been rescinded shortly thereafter, that DOB issued permits for repairs needed, and that the apartment had been re-rented for nearly 10 years.
