Landlord Not Responsible for Construction Work Cited in DOB Violation
LVT Number: #31202
DOB issued a violation notice to landlord for failing to maintain fire safety measures during construction. DOB's inspector found that landlord used a kitchen as a storage room for construction materials and removed an excessive amount of soil, which compromised the stability of the structure and created hazardous conditions for tenants on the second floor. Landlord claimed that no work was being done on the inspection date due to the COVID pandemic. She also denied there were construction materials in the kitchen.
