: Thanks for the information. May I presume that this applies to structural work like reapirs to cracks in wall and ceilings?
: My landlord likes to have the super do a lot of work in the building, no matter what the nature. The super finds "friends" of his (mostly from the streets) to come in a actually DO the work.
Cracks in walls (plaster) can be handled by a handyman. If it's structural and the work needed is beyond pointing, the DOB must have an application, which requires a licensed engineer and/or architect. Problem is that engineers/architects don't supervise the work and although they are under threat of losing their license, this invariabley never happens.
