HPD Annual Safety Notice Mailings

What are annual safety notice mailings?

Annual safety notice mailings are a requirement for residential multifamily properties in New York City.

Each year, owners/managers are required to send out notices to each unit comprised of two components:

1) a response card requesting resident information for lead paint inspections and window guard requirements
2) a building-specific fire safety plan and general emergency preparedness information.

Please note that fire safety information can also be sent during Fire Prevention Week in October, but is typically grouped with lead paint/window guard information to make the process more efficient.

Applicable laws:

  • Window guards: 6-30-91 Chapter 12 (§12-03: Annual Notice; §12-04 Variation in Form of Notices Prohibited; and §12-13 Penalties)
  • Lead paint: Local Law 1/2004; §27-2056.4 Owner Responsibility to Notify Occupants and Investigate
  • Fire Safety Law: RCNY Title 3; §408-02 Residential Fire Safety Guides and Notices
