Register your property with NYC HPD
Who Needs to Register
Property owners of residential buildings are required by law to register annually with HPD if the property is a multiple dwelling (3+ residential units) or a private dwelling (1-2 residential units) where neither the owner nor the owner's immediate family resides.
Building registrations must also be filed annually by September 1st or whenever ownership changes or whenever the information on a valid registration changes (example, new managing agent or site management). HPD uses the contact information supplied in the registration for all official notifications, as well as in the event of an emergency at the property.
How to Register
The easiest way to register is by using HPD's Property Registration Online System (PROS). With this tool, owners and managers can:
- Update registration forms annually or as changes occur. (You still need to print, sign and mail).
- Create new property registrations.
- Review and print a building's registration history and any submitted forms.
- Receive notifications electronically when forms are accepted or rejected.
- Link to the Department of Finance (DOF) for payment of the property registration fee.
Complete the form
Complete the online form and print it, or complete the form that is mailed to you. Once the form is completed, mail the form, signed and dated by the agent and the property owner listed on the registration form, to:
Department of Housing Preservation and Development
Church Street Station
PO Box 3888
New York, NY 10008-3888
Pay the registration fee
A $13 registration fee will be billed directly by the Department of Finance as part of your property tax collection Statement of Account, annually due on July 1st.
If you wish to apply your payment to only the Property Registration fee, you may pay online with a credit card at nyc.gov/payonline or visit a DOF Business Center.
If you wish to mail a payment, you must indicate clearly that the payment is for the Housing- Property Registration charge and include the Borough, Block and Lot of the property on your check (this information is on your registration form). Also indicate your Account number, which is the property registration number for your property. Mail payment to:
