Building Department

About Us

The Incorporated Village of Manorhaven's Building Department is responsible for the administration of the New York State and the Village Codes as they relate to property, buildings and construction within the Village.

The Building Department is comprised of an Inspection Section and Enforcement Section. The Inspection Section is responsible for the intake of applications and issuance of Building, Plumbing and Rental Permits. Members of the Inspection Section follow up on permits that have been issued and conduct safety inspections at job sites to ensure permitted work is being performed in compliance with the applicable State and Town Codes. Members of the Enforcement Section are trained to identify and investigate a variety of construction and illegal housing complaints. Through a comprehensive inspection and investigation process, our inspectors not only identify and bring violations into compliance they help ensure the safety of our residents.

Upon the successful completion of the inspection process and final review of the file, applicants are issued various certificates and licenses confirming and documenting that the permitted work has been done in a safe and satisfactory manner as well as in compliance with State and Village codes.
