Also known as an AEU-2 Form, a Certificate of Correction must be filled out in order to put a cap on a DOB violation. You may declare a correction on all classes (1, 2, or 3) of DOB violations. It is not merely enough to have attended a hearing in order for to close the case, as the certificate must be given to the DOB separate from the hearing. Submitting this document acts as proof that any outstanding work has been completed.
If you have been given a cure date, submitting a Certificate of Correction will allow you to avoid penalties, and not go through the hearing process.
The document can be found online here. You will need to provide details of the violation, and input information about who performed the work.
They can be submitted by post or in-person (from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm) at:
NYC Department of Buildings
