Starting Tuesday, September 14th, the Department of Buildings will not require applicants to pay any fees for filings and permits
for repair work associated with damage caused by the remnants of Tropical Storm Ida. This fee waiver is pursuant to an executive order issued by Mayor Bill de Blasio.
The emergency executive order is designed to aid in the city's recovery from Ida, and to remove barriers for New Yorkers who need to
make repairs to their homes and places of business. If fees were paid for filings or permits for work due to damage caused by Ida from September 1st to September 13th, a refund can be requested. See link below:
