Landlord Fined $800 for Installing Canopy and Awning Without DOB Permits
LVT Number: #30225
DOB issued a violation notice to landlord for work without a permit based on a canopy and awning installed in front of the building. Landlord claimed that it had obtained two DOT canopy permits for the location valid through October 2017 and a DOB work permit issued in July 2000 to erect a non-illuminated awning that had expired in May 2001. DOB noted that its permit had expired and that, in addition to the DOT permits, landlord also needed a DOB permit to erect the canopy. The ALJ fined landlord $800. Landlord appealed and lost.
