Huntington NY Housing Fines Raised

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

The town of Huntington has increased fines and penalties for landlords who are guilty of maintaining substandard and illegal apartments.  The Huntington town board voted unanimously to amend its town code, increasing fines for violations such as renovated or altered rooms done without a permit and structures without certificates of occupancy.

Fines are $1000 for a first offense, $2000 for a second offense and $4000 for a third offense.  The violations are misdemeanors and could include jail time of up to nine months.

These stepped-up code enforcement measures will help assure that all rental properties are safe, up to code and legalized.

The minimum fine for a violation of housing code that results in an injury is $3000.
