New York City’s Indoor Allergen Law and Disclosure Requirements

New York City Administrative Code Section 27-2017 provides regulations for how Landlords of dwellings with 3 or more units must deal with indoor allergens like mold and pests. Specifically, Landlords must:

  • Fix all visible mold and pest infestations in the Rental Unit before starting the Lease term.
  • Repair any underlying defects - for example, leaks or cracks - that increase the risk of mold or pests.
  • Conduct an annual inspection for allergen hazards and address any identified threats.
  • Respond to Tenants’ complaints or requests for an allergen hazard inspection.
  • Thoroughly clean and vacuum any carpet or furniture provided in the Rental Unit.
  • Provide Tenants with the “What Tenants Should Know About Indoor Allergens” pamphlet.

Our New York City Indoor Allergen Disclosure makes it EZ to document compliance with all requirements.

In addition, New York Landlords must annually provide Tenants with the “What Tenants Should Know About Indoor Allergens” pamphlet. The pamphlet:

  • Explains what indoor allergens are;
  • Discusses the risks associated with indoor allergens;
  • Talks about what Tenants should do to reduce the risks of indoor allergens;
  • Discusses what Landlords must do to reduce the risks of indoor allergens.
