RESALE & RENTAL INSPECTION PROCEDURE DURING COVID-19 RESTRICTION PERIOD
Due to the pandemic we are only conducting Certificates of Occupancy inspections on homes and apartments that are vacant of people and furniture for a minimum of 48 hours.
You may apply by downloading the resale or rental application on the township website and selecting the online forms tab. Please complete the application in its entirety and mail it to the Housing Office along with a check or money order. No cash or credit is accepted. Also on the website is a list of items that will be inspected found here: (https://monroetownshipnj.org/online-forms-2/)
Please allow at least three days after mailing to call for an inspection date.
All inspections are being conducted between the hours of 9am and 3pm. You can leave the door open and wait in your vehicle or return later to secure the property. No lock box will be used. PLEASE DO NOT ENTER THE HOME. The inspector will leave the C/O on the kitchen counter if it passes or the violation notice if it fails.
If a re-inspection is needed please mail a copy of the violation notice along with a check or money order for $25 to the Housing Office and call at least three days after mailing to set up the re-inspection date. We are about 8 working days out for inspections.
Any questions please call 856-728-9800 extension 289 or 296.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
