New York City Boiler Inspections and Remediation

Commercial and multi-family properties are required by New York City Department of Buildings regulations to have annual boiler inspections.

Property owners are responsible for ensuring boilers operate safely and are following the Building Code and all related regulations. Failure to submit an inspection report within 14 days of an inspection is $50 per month per boiler and could lead to the full civil penalty of $1,000 per boiler. Also, compliance for any repairs has been reduced from 180 days to 45 days.
