The Pre-Sale Division is responsible for adhering to the City of Detroit Ordinance which requires all single and two-family dwellings to be inspected 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: Currently condominium units are not inspected under the pre-sale ordinance, unless a special inspection request is made by owner.
