Are DOB Fines Increasing?

Is the DOB really issuing more violations, and if so, where and why? These are the questions we’re looking to answer in SiteCompli’s State of the Neighborhoods series report.

Featured Agencies

The FDNY's administrative branch regulates fire-safety related permits, equipment, certifications, and more. The FDNY issues violations via the ECB and through an independent process, some of which can lead to criminal court and charges.

The Department of Buildings is a central New York City compliance agency that has jurisdiction over every structure within the five boroughs.

HPD enforces housing quality standards in residential properties across all five boroughs. HPD inspects housing complaints, issues violations, and runs enforcement programs.

The ECB is a judiciary tribunal that doesn't issue violations, but instead hosts hearings for other NYC agencies issuing administrative violations. The ECB is also commonly known as the Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings, or OATH.
