: Thanks for all of your answers, I guess that I left one thing out that would have helped Anna answer my question. The building is new construction and only 1 1/2 years old and has never had a MDR.
: Does this make a difference ?

Only this: why on earth would they NOT register?

The form only asks for owner/manager info; does not require a sworn statement that they have a Certificate of Occupancy; it is ridiculously nothing, compared to the penalty for not filing: no rent.

One thought: city/state owned buildings may be exempt from MDL 325.

Suggestion: don't spend the rent money, use MDL 325 as a defense, be prepared by doing the research & bringing it to court with you.
