Building Signs - Property Management Signs – Signs NY
The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development, also known as HPD, is the department of NYC in charge of maintaining the city's affordable housing. With the cost of living so high throughout the 5 boroughs, the HPD helps to ensure that the average family can still have a place to live in the city.
Signs for HPD Buildings
Residences that have registered as HPD buildings are also expected to have specific signage that is mandatory for all multi-dwelling properties in New York City. These signs, known as HPD signs, must be displayed in the correct locations according to the Housing Maintenance Code.
Anyone that has registered their building as an HPD property will need to order one of these HPD signs in order to remain up to code.
Types of HPD Signs
There are many different types of HPD signs. Some of these signs include:
- Video Surveillance Signs – In multi-unit HPD buildings, it is required that you post 24 hour surveillance warning signs in an area that is easy to view on the exterior of the building.
- Boiler Room Signs – On the boiler room door and near the entrance of the property, you must place information about who has the keys to the boiler room, along with contact info.
- Building Management Signs – There are many different types of DOB required building management signs, including janitor info, exit signs, and much more.
- Fire Safety Signs – Fire safety signs are required by both the DOB and the fire department. Depending on the building, there may be more than one type of fire sign.
- Floor Number Signs – According to the HPD, floor numbers must be property labeled in multi-residency housing properties.
- Regulatory Signs – There are specific regulatory signs required by HPD that need to be correctly placed in specific areas of the property.
