Landlord Didn't Certify Flame-Resistant Drapes or Provide Emergency Lighting
LVT Number: #31203
The FDNY issued violation notices to landlord for failing to provide a certificate of compliance for flame-resistant materials for draperies at the building, and failing to provide exit signs and emergency lighting operated on a backup electrical system in the event of a power failure. Landlord didn't dispute the violations but claimed that she couldn't bring in certificates of correction because of COVID closures. The ALJ sustained the violations but imposed mitigated penalties totalling $825. Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord wasn't eligible for zero-dollar penalties.
