: Also: what about "certification" for superintendents? How can a tenant

: assistance that can be shared.

Good luck getting HPD or DOB to actually enforce the law, but years ago I was successful in getting HPD to look inther files and place a violation for lack of a super certification. But it doesn't mean much as there are no real qualifications. All the owner has to do is "certify" that the super is qualified. OTOH, I think they are required to have a boiler license.
