At Harlem Property Management, we demystify the complexities enveloped within Local Law 11, ensuring your building not only adheres to the legal requirements but also champions the spirit of safety and precaution that the law represents.

Whether your building has been labeled Safe, given a SWARMP status, or deemed Unsafe, our dedicated team will guide your Board through every nuance of the law, ensuring that your understanding transcends compliance and that you are well-equipped to make informed decisions about the façade restoration projects and inspections.

Ensuring Stress-Free Compliance

 

Your path to unfettered compliance begins with impeccable planning and a strategic approach, hallmarks of our service at Harlem Property Management.

We synergize our vast experience with methodical planning to ensure your building always aligns with Local Law 11 compliance. Starting from orchestrating timely and meticulous façade inspections, advising your Board on financing options, to managing the intricate bid process, we insulate you from the stresses and strains typically associated with regulatory compliance.

Our mission is to ensure that the integrity of your building is uncompromised, marrying safety and legal adherence with timeliness and fiscal responsibility and thereby safeguarding your peace of mind.

My window broke in the midst of a huge rainstorm, and it was freezing and water was coming into my apt. Fredo came super late at night to patch up the window to hold me over until repairs could be made….. Curtis came by a few days later and fully repaired the window so it’s better than new! He made several repairs in my apartment and everything turned out perfectly! Everyone was so diligent and fantastic and so easy and friendly! I’m very happy with this entire group!

We just closed on a distressed property—there were roaches, and active leaks from upstairs neighbors and the unit’s toilet. They responded quickly and professionally to our service request. The leaks are gone, the roaches are gone and the toilet has been replaced. Special shout out to Curtis and Fredo. Curtis also fixed a bad light switch that he noticed while there. He is a man of many talents.

Dealing with a recent emergency plumbing repair need meant that I had to call during the weekend and I received truly prompt and considerate help and respectful treatment especially from Greg at Harlem Property Management aka HPD. Greg made it happen including lining up the plumbing company and making sure everything was approved and handled in a timely manner. This is an outliner in NYC (Manhattan borough) so I really appreciate Greg’s professionalism. Thank you to HPD and to Brian the plumber from the plumbing company hired. Thank you also to Anthony at HPD. Well done Greg.

I recently encountered an emergency situation involving a steam pipe in my building. Upon calling Harlem Property Management's emergency number during office hours, I was assisted by Greg. I would like to formally acknowledge and commend his professional and effective handling of the situation. Greg's response was not only prompt but also demonstrated a high level of professionalism and competence. He quickly coordinated the necessary actions, ensuring that the fire department was contacted and ensuring that a plumbing contractor was dispatched to our building to fix the problem the same morning. The issue was addressed and resolved efficiently, minimizing potential risks and disruptions. As a resident, it was a distressing situation, but Greg's calm and assured approach significantly alleviated my concerns. His ability to manage the emergency effectively is a testament to his skills and the reliability of Harlem Property Management in crisis situations. I am extremely grateful for the swift and competent service provided, and I believe such dedication deserves recognition. Greg's exemplary service has reinforced my confidence in Harlem Property Management’s ability to handle emergencies efficiently and with great care for their residents' safety and well-being. --- This review is structured to be professional, focusing on the positive aspects of the incident, and acknowledges the individual's efforts in a formal manner.
