The Pre-Sale Division provides inspections for single and two-family dwellings prior to selling. This assures the “new home owner” that the house meets livability standards. The inspections follow a set of guidelines, which you can obtain, on the 4th floor of the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center (Buildings, Safety Engineering and Environmental Department).

Note: As of September 17, 2014 the requirement for a pre-sale inspection has been repealed by City Council.  While the repeal is pending enactment, BSEED has suspended the requirement to obtain the inspection.
