Mold Violations are a serious matter in South Bronx

As a landlord in South Bronx who owns three or more rental units in one building, or anywhere else in New York City, you are most likely well aware that there is a 311 hotline that allows your tenants to report mold problems to New York Housing Preservation and Development (HPD). HPD can issue fines that can amount to thousands of dollars for one violation. Local laws permit tenants to withhold rents, or reduce their rent and make repairs themselves when the landlord does not correct mold in their apartment promptly. Tenants also often successfully sue landlords for the adverse health effects from mold in their rental unit. Many of these laws apply to mold in commercial rental spaces as well. In summary, there are a lot of good reasons to get a mold infestation cleaned up promptly in your rental property.

Getting a Fast Response on a Mold Remediation Can be Critical

Once a landlord has been notified by the tenant or a city official of a potential mold issue, the clock starts ticking. The landlord must take immediate steps to help prevent any adverse health effects for the tenants, and to reduce the likelihood of severe legal or financial ramifications.
