Before buying an investment property you should always make sure the property does not have a lien filed against it. It's easy to do so on Just pull up a property report and under the section of the property report titled "Liens" you'll find different types of lien (if existent) that were filed against the property that we were able to identify.

You shoud also check for open HPD violations. When excessive violations are present, this can adversely affect the support given by the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD). These violations can result in building-wide inspections, fees, and the necessity for extensive repair work to correct underlying conditions. In some cases, outstanding violations may result in a lien being placed on the property. Open HPD violations are displayed for every investment property in New York and are updated on a monthly basis.
