Adopted rule summary:

The adopted rules amend section 44-02 of Chapter 44 of HPD's rules relating to orders by the Department for repair of underlying conditions. Underlying conditions are physical defects or failure of a building system that is causing or has caused a violation of the Administrative Code, Multiple Dwelling Law, or any other state or local law that imposes requirements on dwellings, including, but not limited to, a structural defect or failure of a heating, plumbing, or other system.

The rules add to prioritization of selection of buildings for the program, the consideration of certain health indicators, as determined by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, that are also related to housing conditions. Such additional prioritization is necessary because it will assist in targeting agency resources towards those buildings that pose a risk to the health and safety of occupants.

    < To have a order of correction, it should be first determined by the DOH after a ECB hearing not when they issue the violations.

    < If the tenant didn't provide access the owner should NOT be penalized.
