Oh, those pesky registration forms! The Trump Organization violated a city law for seven months when it failed to register Trump Tower with the city by a Sept. 1 deadline.
City law requires owners to register properties with the Department of Housing Preservation and Development. All that’s required is filling out contact form and paying $13 to the Department of Finance each year.
But fines can run up to $500 and unregistered owners have no legal grounds to take residents to court if they don’t pay their rent.
Hours after the violation was reported by NBC News, the Trump Organization renewed its registration, according to the New York Daily News.
Condo sales at the building have surged since President Trump announced his run for president in mid-2015, The Real Deal recently reported. There were 22 sales in the building in 2016, up from 15 in 2015, according to StreetEasy data. [NYDN] — E.B. Solomont
