Please be advised that if you have any open permits or work that has been done to your home without obtaining permits (either by you or a previous owner), you will not pass the inspection. Please obtain the proper permits before inspection to avoid delays. Please also be advised that a furnace certification by a licensed HVAC contractor/plumber must be turned in or attached with your annual rental permit or resale C/O.

Carbon Monoxide detectors shall be placed on every sleeping level inside the home.
At least one portable fire extinguisher shall be installed in all one and two family dwellings upon change of occupancy.
