What’s your MDR number?

On February 27, 2011, in Landlord-Tenant, by Robbie L. Vaughn, Esq.

Multiple Dwelling Registration

If a landlord in Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Staten Island, or the Bronx wants to bring an action in Landlord-tenant court or request a code violation dismissal, it is important that he/she make sure their building has a multiple dwelling registration number and is properly registered with HPD’s Registration Assistance Unit. In order for a landlord to initiate a court action or to request a code violation dismissal, they must prove that the building ‘s registration is current. A building with three or more dwelling units must be registered with HPD’s Registration Assistance Unit. Additionally, owners of  1 and  2 family dwellings, where neither the owner nor any family member occupies the dwelling, are also required to register with HPD. The building’s registration must be renewed annually.
