Demolition companies are required to hire an exterminator to exterminate for rats before demolishing a property.

Before demolition, companies must certify that the pre-demolition extermination was performed and adequate.

The certification form must be filed with the Department of Buildings and a copy sent by email to the NYC Health Department.
