Serving All Five Boroughs of NYC: Manhattan Landlord Negligence Lawyers
All property owners throughout New York City are required to comply with a citywide building code that has evolved over the years to include many specific minimum requirements intended to ensure tenant, visitor and pedestrian safety. While the Department of Buildings (DOB) issues thousands of citations for building code violations each year, seriously unsafe conditions are still widespread and cause many serious accidents and injuries.
