New Document Requirements for All Permits Launching in DOB NOW: Build

Starting on June 1, 2021, all applications, except for Limited Alteration Applications (LAA), electrical, and elevator jobs, will require a Property Ownership Certification form in order to proceed with a permit request in DOB NOW: Build. Read the Service Notice.

As required by Local Law 160 of 2017, the following must be provided on the form:

  • the name and business address of each owner of the property;

  • a list of the properties in New York City owned by each owner; and

  • whether each owner owes covered arrears to the City for each property and the amount of the covered arrears owed.

If the owners own more properties than can be listed on the Property Ownership Certification form, they should use the Supplemental Property Ownership Certification form.
