Local Law 152 requires properties with gas piping systems to receive an inspection of the piping system once every four years on a mandated schedule based on community district. In 2022, Community Districts 4, 6, 8, 9, and 16 were due for inspection by December 31, 2022.
Under the Follow-up #6 to Local Law 152, it is now possible to request an extension to your LL152 deadline. Here is what you need to know about the process of filing for an extension and how to still fulfill LL 152 requirements to avoid a fine and violation.
Completing a Gas Piping System Inspection for a Local Law 152 Extension
You can request an LL 152 extension through the Department of Buildings’ online portal. The form will confirm that you have an operational gas piping system at your property and that you are requesting an exemption to the filing deadline for the paperwork. The extension is 180 days and property owners can only request one extension in their inspection period.
Once you have requested your extension, you must schedule to have your inspection performed by a licensed master plumber in NYC.
