No Penalty Retaining Wall Inspection Program

 

The New York City Department of Buildings (DOB) No-Penalty Retaining Wall Program for this year has ended.

This program allows private property owners in all five boroughs to request visual safety inspections of their retaining walls without the threat of receiving violations for the duration of the program. The inspection is free of charge.

By law, property owners must address the safety and maintenance of retaining walls on their properties, and ensure that their properties are in a safe condition at all times.
