: The only 'annual inspection' in residential buildings that I am aware of is the boiler inspection, and no 'agency' does that: private people, usually from you building's insurance company, do it.
There are a few more required of all multiple dwellings:
elevators/escalators - by private licensed inspectors
sprinkler systems - ditto
fire prevention, high rise buildings - NYC Fire Dept
kitchens in restaurants in residential buildings - NYC Fire Dept
lead-paint hazard, all multiple dwellings built before 1960 - owner of building (only units where owner knows or should know that a child less than 6 yrs old lives)
Coops are not exempt from any of these. There is no annual inspection for coops but not for rentals. Some HUD-subsidized/mortgaged housing do have annual inspection requirements; some NYS/NYC housing may also.
