Where to Find Old Permits

Postby flybyme03 » Sun Jul 23, 2017 2:27 pm

I received a response in my Administrative Determination case for my claim of illegal deregulation against my landlord. The information supplied stated gut renovation with full rewiring of electrical an plumbing along with soundboards, and removal and replacement of floors, tiles, and all walls At the end was the number $75,000 with a sales tax added, although nothing was itemized on the piece of paper (not a contract).

Following legal consultation, I am now going to schedule an HPD inspector to come by and document the construction, which clearly shows new floors over old floors, new tiles over old tiles and walls without insulation that are crumbling. Additionally I am looking to see where I can find the permits that would have to be filed for this kind of work. I've gone through the DOBs building information search and cannot find anything there. Is there another place I can look, as the amount of work they are claiming would have to have had permits at the time.

This is the third thread you've started on the same issue. All follow-ups should be on the initial thread, not with a new thread. See the forum rules on this. This is true for the second thread you started as well. Locking this thread.
