New Facades Violations Portal Launches in DOB NOW: SAFETY on July 12, 2021

On Monday, July 12, 2021, a new Facade Violation Search portal is launching in DOB NOW: Safety.

The portal allows users to submit civil penalty payments, or requests to waive civil penalty payments,  for Cycle 6 or later, resulting from any of the following:

  • Failure to File or Late Filing of TR6/FISP Report
  • FISP Failure to Correct SWARMP Conditions
  • FISP Failure to Correct Unsafe Condition

The portal includes only civil penalties related to DOB violations payable to DOB and not OATH/ECB Summons that are paid to OATH. The last day to submit payments or waiver requests in person, by email, or mail is Thursday, July 8, 2021.

For more information, including step by step guides to submitting your waiver form in the new DOB NOW: Safety portal, read our Service Notice.
