- 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.

- Explains what indoor allergens are;
- Discusses the risks associated with indoor allergens;
