Violations must be reported to be enforced.

While it is logical to assume that Housing Court Judges are given reports and background information on every building (on a case by case basis) assigned to them, tenants still must make an effort to report these violations to HPD, and have inspectors visit their homes to document these violations for the Housing Authority. The Housing Authority does not make random visits to peoples homes. Once a complaint is reported to Housing, inspectors are dispatched to document the problem and contact the landlord.

Note: I have seen buildings (small and large) with a number of obvious dangerous violations with nothing documented housing, what came they do? No one bothered to call Housing.

: Every proceeding in Housing Court is supposed to have a complete record of violations from every agency/department having jurisdiction over housing standards for a particular building ... how does a tenant/respondent reasonably request Housing Court to comply?
