Pre-Sale Inspections

An exterior inspection is required of all properties before they can be sold. The current property owner should stop by City Hall to complete an application and pay an inspection fee of $50. A City of Union building inspector then will inspect the exterior of the property, including the exterior of the building and any other structures on the property, including driveways, storage sheds, etc. Any violations to the City’s Property Maintenance Code will need to be resolved before the property is sold, or arrangements will need to be made to transfer the required repairs to the new property owner.

Adding a presale inspection is an expansion of the existing zoning code and is designed to prevent deterioration of properties. The presale inspection does not replace other inspections such as those for termites, plumbing, interior, etc.
