HPD Property Registration
Property owners of residential buildings are required by law to register annually with HPD if the property is:
· A multiple dwelling (3+ residential units)
· A private dwelling (1-2 residential units) where neither the owner nor the owner's immediate family resides.
Building registrations must also be filed annually by September 1st or whenever ownership changes or whenever the information on a valid registration changes (example, new managing agent or site management). HPD uses the contact information supplied in the registration for all official notifications, as well as in the event of an emergency at the property.
The easiest way to complete a registration form, keep track of whether your property is registered, and verify submitted information is by using HPD'S PROPERTY REGISTRATION ONLINE SYSTEM(PROS). With this tool, owners and managers can:
· Update registration forms annually or as changes occur. (You still need to print, sign and mail).
· Create new property registrations.
· Review and print a building's registration history and any submitted forms.
· Receive notifications electronically when forms are accepted or rejected.
· Link to the Department of Finance (DOF) for payment of the property registration fee.
REGISTRATION IS A TWO PART PROCESS:
· Step 1 – Complete the online form and print it, or complete the form that is mailed to you. Once the form is completed, mail the form, signed and dated by the agent and the property owner listed on the registration form, to:
Department of Housing Preservation and Development
Church Street Station
PO Box 3888
New York, NY 10008-3888
· Step 2 – Pay the Registration Fee
A $13 registration fee will be billed directly by the Department of Finance as part of your property tax collection Statement of Account, annually due on July 1st. DO NOT SEND PAYMENT FOR PROPERTY REGISTRATION TO HPD. If you wish to apply your payment to only the Property Registration fee, you may pay online with a credit card at nyc.gov/payonline or visit a DOF Business Center.
If you wish to mail a payment, you must indicate clearly that the payment is for the Housing- Property Registration charge and include the Borough, Block and Lot of the property on your check (this information is on your registration form). Also indicate your Account number, which is the property registration number for your property. Mail payment to:
Department of Finance

HPD Notices of Violation (NOVs)
HPD Housing Inspectors may issue 3 different classes of HPD violations, and although there is no fine associated with these violations, each require correction and owner certification within a specific mandated time frame. Class A violations, which are considered non-hazardous, require correction within 90 days of receipt, Class B "hazardous" violations require correction within 30 days of receipt, and Class C, "immediately hazardous" violations require correction within 24 hours of receipt, except for Class C Lead and Window Guard violations, which allow 21 days for correction.
Certification by property owners or managing agents affirm that the violating conditions noted in the violation have been corrected within the required timeframe. Certification can occur by mail or via eCertification, which is required 14 days after the correction date for Class A & B violations, or 5 days after the correction date for Class C violations.
If an owner fails to correct a Class C violation within the required time frame, HPD's Division of Maintenance may perform emergency repairs at the owner's expense, which, if unpaid, may result in a tax lien against the property. Additionally, uncorrected violations may result in civil penalties being imposed by the HPD's Housing Litigation Division.
