Grace Period to Register Illegal Home Elevators in NYC ending soon

Monday, July 24, 2017

Keeping our customers informed, D & D Elevator would like to share some important information with you.

New York City's (NYC) Department of Building (DOB) is offering a grace period for owners of illegal home elevators to register them without penalty within 90 days of July 6. The DOB is also performing inspections and tests of unregistered units free of charge during this period. Every elevating device, including dumbwaiters, platform lifts and stairway chairlifts, must be registered and have a certificate of compliance from the DOB. The move comes after a woman suffered serious injuries in May using an unregistered lift illegally installed in a Manhattan home.

Those wishing to participate should email (mail to): PrivateResidenceElevator@buildings.nyc.gov  the DOB's Elevator Unit or call them at 212-393-2555.
