Do you own a property in New York City?
As an owner of property located in New York City, it is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with Local Law 1 and to comply with its requirements. The law imposes a number of property owner responsibilities, including:
- The law requires annual notifications by owners to all occupants as well as to occupants upon lease-up, lease renewal, and agreement to lease or commencement of occupancy inquiring if there are children under 6 years of age residing in the unit. Owners must include a notice about owner responsibilities under the law with each lease and must provide a pamphlet informing occupants about lead. There is also a requirement that owners physically inspect units whose occupants do not respond to determine if there is a child under 6 residing in the unit.
- Owners must investigate units where children under 6 reside as well as common areas in the property to find peeling paint, chewable surfaces, deteriorated subsurfaces and friction and impact surfaces. This investigation must be conducted at least annually, or more often if the owner knows about a condition that may cause a lead hazard, or the occupant complains about such a condition.
- Remediation of lead hazards, using safe work practices and trained workers.
- Making apartments lead safe on turnover.
- Using safe work practices for all repairs and renovations performed in a unit where a child under six resides and in the common areas of buildings with such units.
