Sidewalk Violation Removals
What is a sidewalk violation?
A sidewalk violation is an official notice issued by DOT stating that your sidewalk is defective. There is no fine associated with a violation. A copy of the notice is filed with the County Clerk and remains on file until the Clerk receives official notification from the City that satisfactory repairs have been made. A violation can complicate selling or refinancing your property.
The City issues sidewalk violations in order to encourage property owners to repair their sidewalks to enhance public safety. Property owners are encouraged to perform repairs to their sidewalks before a condition becomes a defect which would give rise to a violation. Upon failure of a property owner to remedy the sidewalk defect cited in a violation issued by DOT after an inspection, DOT may perform the work or hire a contractor to perform the work and the Department of Finance will bill the property owner pursuant to Section 19-152 of the New York Administrative Code.
If you do not perform repairs within 45 days, DOT may perform the work or hire a contractor to perform the work and the Department of Finance will bill the property owner.
How do I correct a sidewalk violation?

What are the risks of having open sidewalk violations on a building?
The DOT has stated that if repairs are not made within the required timeframe (45 days), they may perform repair work themselves or bid the work to an approved contractor.
The cost of the work will then be added to the lot’s property taxes, and become a lien if unpaid. Failing to satisfy these violations may also result in difficulty during a property transaction or refinance. An owner may also be held liable if anyone injures themselves on the unrepaired sidewalk.
Basements are inherently prone to flooding. They are the lowest level of a building, typically built partly or entirely below ground level. So, it is only natural for the water in the ground to find its way into the basement and create leak that can cause a flooded basement. That’s where basement waterproofing comes in handy. In my cases. Groundwater builds up next to your home causing hydrostatic pressure on the foundation walls and it is able to find its way in through a multitude of entry points. Here are some common crack types:
The good news is, this problem can be solved with the help of Biordi Waterproofing Specialists.
