The New York City Department of Buildings (DOB) No-Penalty Retaining Wall Program will begin on June 20, 2024 and run through July 31, 2024.

This program allows private property owners in all five boroughs to request visual safety inspections of their retaining walls without the threat of receiving violations for the duration of the program. The inspection is free of charge.

By law, property owners must address the safety and maintenance of retaining walls on their properties.
