: Our upper Manhattan tenant's assn is trying to find out who
: the landlord's contractors are: if they are licensed for all the different
: work they do (plumbing, electrical, masonry, pointing) and if, as rumored,
: they are actually owned by the landlord's company. Anyone know how to research
: contractor/corporate ownership or licensing?
That's a difficult thing. Look at the trucks parked outside. Ask them (you never know). Go to the Department of Buildings if they work involves alterations. These might be filed by Architects or Engineers, but also might have other info. For ownership, it's in the basement of 60 Centre Street where corporations are listed, or the Department of State in Albany. You need to be tenacious and get over what will be many bureaucratic roadblocks.
