Wall Complaint

You can report a stand-alone or retaining wall that is bulging, cracked, defective, or inadequate. Violations are issued when appropriate.

Stand-alone walls act as a partition or divider. Retaining walls run along the back of a property and separate land.

The No-Penalty Retaining Wall Inspection Program for 2014 has ended. This program allowed private property owners in all five boroughs to request a free visual safety inspection of their retaining walls, without the threat of receiving violations for the duration of the program.
