Building Sold Before Violation Notice Issued

Palmer: DOB Violation No. 34371128N (3/24/03) [1-pg. doc.]

(Decision submitted by Manhattan attorney Adam Leitman Bailey, who represented the landlord.)

DOB issued a violation notice to landlord. Landlord claimed it didn’t own the building at the time the notice was issued. Landlord proved this by submitting a deed showing he sold the building shortly before the notice was issued. The ALJ ruled for landlord and dismissed the violation.
