DOB NOW


DOB NOW is the Department’s self-service online tool that will enable Owners, Design Professionals, Filing Representatives, and Licensees to do all business with the Department online.  DOB NOW is part of our Building One City plan to provide better customer service and increased access to information. It allows customers to submit applications, make payments, schedule appointments, check the status of an application or inspection, pull permits, and make renewals.

DOB NOW has four parts:

  • DOB NOW: Inspections  is the new name for Inspection Ready. All current functionality remains the same for online scheduling, tracking, and notifications as well as enforcement and development inspections.
  • DOB NOW: Build gives you online access to job filings, permits, Post Approval Amendments, Corrections, After Hour Variances, and Letters of Completion.
  • DOB NOW: Safety gives you online access to compliance filings, such as for façades, elevators, or boilers.
  • DOB NOW: Licensing will provide online exam filing, issuance, and renewal for Licensees. COMING SOON.
