Landlord Fined $8,750 for Unauthorized Gas Piping and Fittings
LVT Number: #30462
DOB issued three violation notices to landlord for: (a) working without a permit; (b) failing to have plumbing system tested; and (c) supplying gas to the buildings without DOB inspections and certifications. DOB's inspector found no permits on file for a gas dryer and hot water heater in the building cellar. At a hearing, landlord claimed that the violations had been corrected. The ALJ found no valid defense but reduced the penalties in light of landlord's compliance. Landlord was fined $8,750.
