In addition to the New York City Lead-Based Paint Hazards & Window Guard forms delivered in early January, here is a second email. All residents are requested to respond. Please click here to find the Annual New York City Lead-Based Paint Hazards and Window Guard form. For your records, you may download a copy of the form and Frequently Asked Questions by clicking here.
Lead-Based Paint Hazards: New York City Law requires the installation of approved window guards on each window in an apartment occupied by a child under 11 years of age (10 years or younger). That law also requires residents to complete and return this questionnaire to the Landlord on or before February 15, 2016, even if no child resides in the apartment.
Window Guards: New York City law requires that owners of buildings constructed before 1960 send this form to all residents in order to determine if a child under 6 years of age (5 years or younger) resides in the apartment.
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT IF YOU FAIL TO RETURN A WRITTEN RESPONSE TO THE LANDLORD BY FEBRUARY 15, 2016, THE LANDLORD IS REQUIRED TO MAKE REASONABLE ATTEMPTS TO INSPECT YOUR APARTMENT IN ORDER TO ASCERTAIN WHETHER A CHILD OF APPLICABLE AGE RESIDES THEREIN.
These inspections must be conducted before March 1, 2016. Therefore, Management will begin conducting inspections of all non-responsive apartments commencing on Thursday, February 18, 2016 with further attempts to follow as necessary.
You can avoid this inconvenience by simply returning your completed form to the landlord in one of the following ways:
• Mail to: PCVST Lead Paint Window Guard survey, 276 First Avenue Loop, New York, NY 10009
• Drop your form in any rent drop box throughout the property
Or in one of the designated boxes at the vestibule of:
• Public Safety Office - 2 Stuyvesant Oval
• Oval Services - 17A Stuyvesant Oval, or
• Management Office - 276 First Avenue Loop
For your convenience you can also email your completed form to LPWGSurvey@stuytown.com.
