There are two. First, the Residential Occupancy Permit will have to be posted conspicuously at the property. This will make it easier for first responders to reach the owner in the event of an emergency and help the Building Department to better coordinate with property owners to resolve code violations without issuing citations. Second, if a property owner is seeking eviction in Albany City Court, a copy of the ROP will have to be submitted along with the eviction paperwork. This will avoid delays later in the eviction proceeding.
