DOB Complaints and Violations

What is an AEUHAZ1?

An AEUHAZ1 is an administratively issued violation, given for failure to immediately correct a Class 1 DOB-ECB violation. The DOB typically issues this infraction to properties where Class 1 infractions remain uncorrected for 75-90 days after the initial issue date. An AEUHAZ1 carries a civil penalty of $1500. This is separate from and in addition to any fines paid at the ECB hearing for the initial Class 1 violation.

An AEUHAZ1 is issued directly to the building itself, NOT to a named respondent. This means that while a tenant, contractor, vendor, or other party may incur the initial DOB-ECB Class 1 violation at a building, the owner or manager of the building may ultimately be responsible for clearing the AEUHAZ1 and the original violation. Failing to do so will result in the AEUHAZ1 remaining on the property’s records, causing difficulty during a transaction, refinance, or preventing the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy.

To avoid an AEUHAZ1, make sure all infractions in the violation are corrected and a Certificate of Correction is submitted to the Department of Buildings as soon as possible
