Notice of Violations- (Format 012345678L)
When it comes to FDNY violations via OATH, it’s not enough to attend the hearing and pay any issued fines. A Certificate of Correction must be submitted to the issuing agency, otherwise, the violation will remain open. Failure to submit a Certificate of Correction can result in additional fines, trouble getting new work permits or a Certificate of Occupancy, or issues during a transaction/refinance.
How do I correct a Notice of Violation?
- If a cure date is offered (first offense), submit a Certificate of Correction to the FDNY in advance of the cure date
- If accepted, you can avoid a hearing and any potential fines (unless the hearing is required, as noted on the violation)
- If there is no cure date, you will need to attend the ECB hearing, pay any subsequent fines, and still submit the Certificate of Correction to the FDNY
