Is your property registered with New York City’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development?
Not having your property registered could lead to a fine, dismissal of your landlord tenant eviction case, or denial of back rent owed to you by your tenant!
If your property is not registered with HPD – you’re not alone!
According to the New York Post:
“Mayor de Blasio has still failed to register his Brooklyn rental property with the city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development, three months after The Post pointed out the lapse.”
A building with three or more dwelling units must be registered with HPD’s Registration Assistance Unit. Additionally, owners of 1 and 2 family dwellings, where neither the owner nor any family member occupies the dwelling, are also required to register with HPD. The building’s registration must be renewed annually.
You can complete part of the registration online.
