DOB Complaints and Violations

What is a Work Without a Permit Violation?

Work Without a Permit (WWP) violations can be issued for several reasons – for failure to pull an appropriate permit for ongoing work; for failure to post the permit (or post it in a conspicuous place, per regulations), or for construction performed beyond the scope of approved work/permitting. WWP violations are typically issued as DOB-ECB infractions (though they can be associated with other violations like E-ELEVATOR PVTs).

As of Fall 2017, professionally certified applications will not be accepted at a building where a WWP violation was issued for one year after the issuance. This applies to the sub-parts of partially owned properties, depending on the WWP issuance (full building or partial building). Additionally, WWP civil penalties issued within one year of of a previous WWP violation will be two times the amount that would otherwise be imposed.
