(a) Hearings to determine whether sealing orders were properly issued by the Department of Buildings may be arranged through the General Counsel's office. A person challenging a sealing order may obtain a hearing by submitting a written request to the office of the General Counsel.
(b) The Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings (OATH) will be notified to schedule a hearing after the General Counsel's office receives the written request for the hearing. OATH will set the date and time for the hearing. The General Counsel's office will notify the person requesting the hearing as soon as OATH calendars the hearing. In the event that the person seeking the hearing fails to appear, the Commissioner's Order to seal the premises will remain in effect.
