Landlord Received Reduced Penalty for Fixing Exit Doors
LVT Number: #28639
DOB issued a violation notice to landlord for failing to maintain the required number of exits. DOB's inspector stated that the building's exit doors weren't self-closing at the first-floor and cellar levels. At a hearing, landlord claimed that the violation had been corrected. The ALJ therefore imposed a mitigated penalty of $250. Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord claimed that there should be no penalty since the condition was cured. But DOB didn't accept landlord's certificate of correction prior to the cure date listed on the violation notice.
