Local Law 11

Local Law 11 is a New York City Department of Buildings statute that requires facades maintenance on buildings of six or more stories every five years. First, a certified architect or engineer determines whether potentially dangerous deterioration has occurred on a building's exterior faces. The contractor then files recommendations with the city. Finally, the building owner schedules the necessary facade work and is required to complete it in a timely manner.
