If you are a tenant living in a building while construction work is ongoing, the building’s owner is required to post or distribute a Safe Construction Bill of Rights and a Tenant Protection Plan notice.

The Safe Construction Bill of Rights is a notice that describes the work being conducted and alerts tenants of amenities or essential services that will be unavailable or interrupted during the construction. The notice must be distributed to each tenant, or posted in the lobby and on every floor within 10 feet of every elevator bank or in a building with no elevator, within 10 feet or inside of every main stairwell.

You can report, by phone, that a Safe Construction Bill of Rights notice is not posted or distributed.

The Tenant Protection Plan notice, using a Department of Buildings' (DOB) created template, informs tenants that permits have been issued by DOB for work in the building and provides contact information for a person in control of the site.

The notice must be distributed to each tenant, or posted in the lobby and on every floor within 10 feet of every elevator bank or in a building with no elevator, within 10 feet or inside of every main stairwell.

Tenants may obtain a paper copy of their building’s Tenant Protection Plan from the owner or access the plan on the DOB's website.
