NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — There’s a new push by New York City to keep landlords accountable for dangerous conditions.

A new Department of Buildings regulation bars owners of residential buildings with a high proportion of hazardous violations from getting new construction permits.

The buildings will be put on a list by the DOB and won’t be able to obtain a permit until violations are resolved.

The permit restriction applies to violations issued on or after Jan. 4, 2020.
