If the department proposes to institute proceedings pursuant to this article, it may file a copy of the certification and a notice of intention to commence such proceedings in the office of the clerk of the county in which the commercial or industrial real property is located. Such notice shall contain the names of all persons required to be served pursuant to this section and shall otherwise meet the requirements of subdivision (b) of rule sixty-five hundred eleven of the civil practice law and rules. The notice shall be indexed by the clerk in the manner prescribed by subdivision (c) of rule sixty-five hundred eleven of the civil practice law and rules for a notice of pendency of action and shall have the same effect as such notice. It shall expire one year after filing, if no proceeding pursuant to this article has been commenced. Except as otherwise provided herein, all of the provisions of article sixty-five of the civil practice law and rules shall be applicable to the notice filed pursuant to this article.

The department shall serve upon the owner of the commercial or industrial real property, a copy of the certification. Service shall be made personally or by posting in a conspicuous place upon the commercial or industrial real property and mailing a copy by certified mail to the last known owner at such owner’s last known address. The copy of the certification shall be accompanied by a notice stating that proceedings pursuant to this article may be instituted unless the owner notifies the department that the property has not been abandoned. Such notification shall be made by a showing that the conditions upon which the findings in such certification are based do not exist or have been corrected. Such showing shall be made not later than thirty days after the date of such notice.

Such copy shall, in the case of a mortgagee or lienor, be accompanied by a notice that proceedings pursuant to this article may be instituted unless the mortgagee or lienor, within forty-five days of receipt of such mailing, either commences proceedings to foreclose the mortgage or lien or enters into an agreement with the department to bring the building into compliance with the applicable provisions of law.
