Please be advised that in order to rent or sell your home a Certificate of Continued Occupancy is required. In order to obtain a CCO you must complete the application, pay the required fees and have the home inspected prior to any change in occupancy. This process takes approximately 4 to 6 weeks, so allow ample time. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call Dot at 201-768-3398.
