The Filing Deadline For Cycle 7 Reports
Under Local Law 11/98 is Changing!
A Staggered System of Report Deadlines is Coming

Now Is the Best Time to Prepare,
As You May Be Required To File the Next Report
Sooner than February, 2012

Local Law 11 of 1998, Section 27-129 of the administrative code of the City of New York, remains in effect.
Local Law No. 38 of 2007 created a provision for Local Law 11/98 filings to be submitted on a staggered inspection cycle, not to exceed five years between inspections.  The Commissioner of Buildings is required to establish the required schedule soon.  Some Cycle 7 filing deadlines will be sooner than the understood date of February of 2012.  This means that buildings with SWARMP conditions may need to be repaired sooner than expected.

  • Your Professional is required to inspect a representative sample of the façade close-up from scaffolding.
  • If your previous Cycle 6 report was filed with any SWARMP conditions, these conditions need to be repaired before the Cycle 7 report is filed.
  • Any Cycle 6 SWARMP conditions left unrepaired automatically obtain "default unsafe" status on the Cycle 7 filing.
  • If new unsafe conditions are noted during the Cycle 7 inspection, your Professional is required to inform the Building Department immediately.
  • We recommend beginning to plan for façade repairs now, as the new requirements will likely increase demand for contractors, scaffolding and sidewalk bridging.
