How to Correct Violations

Building owners can check for open violations online using the HPDOnline application. Building owners may have corrected violations removed from the record by certifying, either by mail or eCertification, that the violations were corrected within the required time period specified on the Notice of Violation.  Click here for HPD’s notification of correction of violation online eCertification program or see certification instructions on the back of the Notice of Violation if you chose to mail certification of correction of violation.   After the specified time period has passed, building owners may file a Dismissal Request form with their Borough Code Enforcement office for a fee.
