From Complaints & Violations to Registration: Why handling the HPD is important year-round
Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) issues are always a hot topic this time of year, when temperatures drop and tenant heat complaints tend to rise.
HPD has hundreds of statutes and regulations on the books, but which are the ones that affect your buildings? What do property managers and owners need to know to handle HPD year-round?
At SiteCompli, we created the HPD Survival Kit for property managers to answer these questions, and to share our experiences monitoring compliance on 500,000+ residential units in NYC.
The top tips include:
- HPD Registration is the key that unlocks all other HPD processes for you: You cannot certify or dismiss a violation if your building is not registered. If you don’t know if you need to register, or the status of your current registrations, reach out to the HPD Registration center via the contact information in your Survival Kit.
- Avoid HPD enforcement as much as you can: Having a building entered into the AEP (Alternative Enforcement Program) or the ERP (Emergency Repair Program) is completely avoidable. Addressing complaints and violations, especially if they are Class C – immediately hazardous, will save you money and help you avoid these programs.
- Stay up-to-date on regulations: From Annual Safety Notice Mailings to what an inspector looks for when they come to your building, knowledge is power. Make sure you have a way to get updates from the HPD on regulation and law changes – subscribing to the SiteCompli Blog is one way!
