State law requires an inspection of the smoke alarm(s), carbon monoxide alarm(s), and portable fire extinguisher(s) before the sale, transfer or rental of residential property can occur. N.J.A.C. 5:70-4.19
Inspections are performed by the Borough's Fire Official every Wednesday from 12:00pm to 4:00pm. Certificates are issued on site at the time of inspection, and are valid for six (6) months or until another change in occupancy occurs, whichever comes first.
STEP 1: CLICK HERE for the application, paying close attention to the accompanying instructions regarding the proper type and placement of the required devices.
STEP 2: Mail or bring your application to the Building Department, along with the applicable fee in exact cash or check payable to Borough of Ringwood.
TIP: We suggest that you not wait until close to the closing to schedule the inspection – if the inspection fails, you will need to reapply for the next available inspection date, and consequently, the closing may be delayed.
