Housing Code Violation Data

Using HPDONLINE, you will be able to access information about individual residential buildings in the City of New York, including:

  • Violations of the City's Housing Maintenance Code and the State's Multiple Dwelling Law.  Please note that all violations which are listed are active violations.  You may see old violations that are active; until a violation is inspected by HPD or is properly certified as corrected, a violation will remain on record even though the condition may be corrected.  It is an owner’s responsibility to ensure that his/her building record reflects the actual conditions at the building.  Information on how to request violation removal can be found on HPD’s website
  • Contact information based on the last valid property registration form.
  • Charges incurred by HPD for work conducted through HPD to address emergency conditions (For actual amounts owed to the City for these repairs, contact the NYC Department of Finance
  • Work order created, which may not be completed, or for which the charges have not yet been transferred to the Department of Finance for billing.  
  • Housing litigation activity by HPD against the property.
  • I-cards (cards which reflect the legal occupancy of a building).  A building’s Certificate of Occupancy, which is available from the NYC Department of Buildings is the most accurate document about occupancy but if there is no Certificate of Occupancy, the I-card is often considered the legal document regarding occupancy.  

HPDONLINE is also the portal through which building owners and managers can:

  • eCertify the correction of open housing code violations 
  • complete a property registration form online
  • file a Certificate of Installation for carbon monoxide detectors
