DOB Complaints and Violations

What is a cure date?

A cure date may be offered to first-time offenders for Class 2 and Class 3 offenses. The cure date will be listed on the violation copy next to the hearing date. If offered, submitting a Certificate of Correction before the cure date is the best way to save time and avoid financial penalties.

If a cure date is listed on the violation copy, you have the option of admitting guilt by submitting a Certificate of Correction to the DOB. If the Certificate is Accepted by the DOB, you will not have to attend the scheduled ECB hearing, and avoid any subsequent penalties. The violation will then have the status of “cured.”

Please note that if you do not submit a Certificate of Correction before the cure date, you are still required to submit one as proof of compliance. Failure to submit a Certificate of Correction will result in the violation remaining open in the DOB’s records, and will lead to escalated penalties in the case of Class 1 violations.  Because the hearing process and the corrections process are separate, you can submit a Certificate of Correction once the underlying conditions have been fixed.
