Borough Home Sale Checklist


The Borough does not require a Certificate of Occupancy for the sale of a residential property.  There are several steps that you will need to complete before closing:

  • Call the Department of Public Works to schedule a House Inspection, 609-737-9440.2.
  • Call the Bureau of Fire Safety to schedule an inspection for Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detector:
  • Once you have a closing date, email Betty Sterling at [email protected] to schedule a final meter read. Please include the name of your title company in your email. 

The fee for the House Inspection is $100.  The fee for a non-quarterly meter read is $50.  These fees will be charged to the final water/sewer bill.
