WHEN IS A TPP REQUIRED?
If the owner section of the application (PI) indicates that there are occupied dwelling units in the building, then a TPP is required, except for Alt-CO subsequent filings where the TPP is approved on the initial filing.
ON A SITE WHERE THE WORK INVOLVED DOES NOT AFFECT TENANTS, IS THERE A WAY TO WAIVE TPP?
If the owner section of the application (PI) indicates that there are occupied dwelling units in the building, then a TPP is required. The TPP cannot be waived if there are occupied dwelling units.
DO I NEED TO SUBMIT PLANS OR DOCUMENTS
WITH THE TPP REQUEST?
The only document that is required is a DPL-1 form if the applicant of the
TPP request is different from the applicant on the job filing (PW1).
WHEN CAN I REQUEST A TPP?
Currently, the TP review request can only be created and submitted after the job filing is approved. The TPP must be approved before a work permit can be requested
CAN THE TPP APPLICANT OF RECORD PERFORM THE TENANT PROTECTION COMPLIANCE SPECIAL INSPECTION?
Section 28-120.1 of the New York City Administrative Code requires the registered design professional preparing the tenant protection plan to be retained by the General Contractor. Section 1704.1.1.2 of the Building Code requires the Special Inspection Agency and inspectors to be independent of the contractor responsible for the work. Therefore, the RDP preparing the TPP is not permitted to be the Special Inspector.
