Types of DOB Violations

 

The NYC Construction Codes require owners to build and maintain their properties in safe condition. Inspectors issue Environmental Control Board (ECB) Notices of Violation or Department of Buildings (DOB) Violations when property or construction doesn’t comply with the Construction Codes, NYC Zoning Resolution and other applicable laws and rules.
