TPP Requirements

Both the Registered Design Professional and the property owner will be required to sign the TPP.
Please be reminded that pursuant to Local Law 154 of 2017, owners are required to notify the Department in writing at least 72 hours before starting work that requires a TPP. The Department’s online form must be used to make the notification.

Posting Requirements

Owners must distribute and post the required Tenant Protection Plan (TPP) Notice to Occupants when the Department of Buildings issues a work permit. The updated notice reflects the changes made by Local Law 106 of 2019

The required Notice to Occupants must be distributed to each occupied dwelling unit and: 

  • prominently post the TPP Notice to Occupants in the lobby; and 
  • posted on each floor within ten feet of the elevator; or 
  • if the building does not have an elevator, within ten feet of or in the main stairwell on each floor

NOTE: Failure to post the Department-approved TPP Notice to Occupants may result in the imposition of penalties.
