Rule status: Adopted

Agency: HPD

Effective date: October 8, 2020

Adopted rule summary:

The adopted rule revises and clarifies certain rules promulgated under the New York City Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Act of 2003 (Lead Law), which requires owners to retain records for 10 years of any notices required to be distributed and records of work performed under the law. Owners must transfer such records to a new owner, where applicable, and make the records available to HPD upon request. The adopted rules add criteria, consistent with Local Law 31 of 2020, to clarify that owners must perform certain investigations within five years of the effective date of the law, and keep records regarding such investigations. The rules also make certain technical and plain language changes.
