2016 LL84 Benchmarking due
The NYC Benchmarking Law requires owners of large buildings to annually measure their energy and water consumption in a process called benchmarking. The law standardizes this process by requiring building owners to enter their annual energy and water use in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) online tool, ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager® (opens in new window) and use the tool to submit data to the City. This data informs gives building owners about a building's energy and water consumption compared to similar buildings, and tracks progress year over year to help in energy efficiency planning.

Who Needs to Register
Property owners of residential buildings are required by law to register annually with HPD if the property is a multiple dwelling (3+ residential units) or 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.
How to Register
The easiest way to register 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.
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
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.
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
P.O. Box 680
Newark, NJ 07101-0680
After Your Property Is Registered
After HPD receives your form and payment, HPD will notify you by mail or email. All notifications will be sent to the address of the managing agent identified on the form or to the owner if the owner is the manager. If you do not receive a receipt or a correction form within 2-4 weeks of submitting your form, you can check using HPDONLINE or through your PROS account to verify whether you validly registered. Contact the Registration Assistance Unit if you have questions or concerns regarding corrections or questions.
Failure to Register
Buildings without valid property registration are subject to civil penalties of $250-$500, may be issued Orders, and will be ineligible to certify violations, request a Code Violation Dismissal, or initiate a court action to recover possession of the premises for nonpayment of rent.
If you receive an Order to register, you must register to remove it. Once your registration is valid, HPD will administratively remove the violation; you do not need to take any additional action. Follow the instructions on this page or on the back of the Order to obtain a registration form or contact HPD with questions.
HPD is currently contacting unregistered properties with 3-5 dwelling units to encourage registration. View the notice here:
