Bill de Blasio’s NYC Slumlord Watch List is Filling Up

Residents can submit their buildings for consideration using a simple form on the Web.

On September 12, 2009, Bill de Blasio announced the creation of his NYC Slumlord Watch List to call attention to negligent landlords who continually violate city housing laws. Landlords qualify for the Watch List when their housing fails to meet minimum health and safety standards and has open, life threatening violations. Specifically, buildings with fewer than 35 units must have an average of three open, serious violations (B and C violations) per unit. Larger buildings must have an average of at least two open serious violations (B and C violations) per unit. Documented violations may be found on the HPD website which also includes complaints placed through the city’s 3-1-1 line.

The Watch List has been updated weekly based on submissions from New Yorkers. Have you checked to see whether your landlord’s mismanagement of your building qualifies for inclusion on the NYC Slumlord Watch List?
