1If you are unsure of the mailing date, call Customer Service at (212) 361-1400.
The Respondent did not receive the ticket (notice of violation) or the issuing agency did not serve the ticket correctly.
If the ticket names the property owner or owner’s agent as Respondent, attach a copy of a New York City tax bill and/or multiple dwelling registration forms (if applicable) for the building for the year during which the ticket was issued.
If the ticket does NOT name the property owner or owner’s agent, upload proof of Respondent’s mailing address at the time the ticket was issued. Such proof may be a driver’s license, permit, or an authorization to collect sales taxes.
The ticket and notices from ECB identify the Respondent as “Owner”, “Agent”, “Condo President” or another general title.
Do not check this box if the ticket names a person, business, corporation, organization or other entity.
The Respondent died on or before the hearing date.
This applies only when the deceased is the person who is named as Respondent on the ticket. If so, upload a copy of the death certificate of the named Respondent.
The Respondent was legally incompetent at the time of the hearing.
Upload a copy of a court order stating that the Respondent was incompetent.
The Respondent owned the place of occurrence at one time, but sold or transferred it before the date of the ticket.
Upload proof of the transfer, including a complete deed and a New York State Real Property Transfer Tax Form.
Respondent never owned the place of occurrence, or did not own it when the ticket was issued, and the ticket describes a violation that involves a building or specific property.
If this reason applies, upload supporting documents, such as proof that someone else owned the building or property at the time the ticket was issued.
This reason does NOT apply if the ticket is issued for a violation that does not relate to a building or property; for example, illegal posting of handbills, littering, vending or tickets that name building managers, tenants, contractors, or other people working at a property.
The Respondent is a former agent, tenant or person in control of the property where the violation occurred, but was no longer an agent, tenant or person in control at the time the ticket was issued. State:
a) Respondent’s connection to the property and when that connection ended:
b) Upload a copy of any relevant agreements or leases that show when the Respondent’s connection to the property ended.
