Local Law 101 of 2015 (LL 101) requires the Department of Buildings (DOB) to refer to the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) immediately hazardous elevator violations in multiple dwellings that are found after inspection to be uncorrected by the owner. When DOB inspectors find an immediately hazardous condition in an elevator that requires the elevator to be taken out of service until the condition is corrected, they will refer the condition to HPD. Upon such referral, HPD will make an assessment of what action may be necessary based on the inoperable condition of the elevator and other relevant factors. The rules provide criteria to assist HPD in making its determination regarding such action.
