Gonzalez, P.J., Saxe, Catterson, Acosta, Gische, JJ.
Plaintiff failed to state a cause of action based on defendant's failure to procure insurance coverage for a delay in obtaining temporary certificates of occupancy (TCO coverage) for the subject condominiums. Absent a specific request for the insurance, defendant, as broker, had no duty to obtain coverage (see Hoffend & Sons, Inc. v Rose & Kiernan, Inc., 7 NY3d 152, 157-158 ). Here, there is no evidence that plaintiff specifically requested that defendant obtain TCO coverage. Nor was there a special relationship between the parties (see Murphy v Kuhn, 90 NY2d 266, 272 ).
We have considered plaintiff's remaining arguments and find them unavailing.
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
