Business Address Verification

Certain types of businesses must be approved by the Department of Buildings (DOB) before they can take occupancy in a building. This is so it can be ensured that city zoning allows your business type to be in your chosen location.

Trades include;

  • Plumber
  • Fire Suppression Piping Contractor
  • Rigger
  • Electrician
  • Sign Hanger
  • Elevator Agency
  • Oil Burner Equipment Installer

Email it to or mail it to:
NYC Department of Buildings 
Attn: Licensing & Exams Unit  
280 Broadway, 1st Floor 
New York, NY 10007

Use the LIC33 Business Verification Form to. You will be contacted by phone or email with the results.

Including a copy of the most recent Certificate of Occupancy (CofO) will expedite the process.
