Selling Your Home

If you are selling or renting your property the Township follows this process:

  • Completely fill out our Fire Inspection Form.  Selling Your Home.pdf
  • Drop off or mail the form with a check or money order for $50.00 made out to East Windsor Township.  The Township does not accept credit cards.

Allow one week for processing

  • We will call you to schedule the inspection.  Inspections are in the morning on varying days.  The certificate is valid for 60-days, so determine your closing date prior to scheduling.
  • The Fire Inspector looks at the operation and life of the smoke/carbon monoxide detectors, as well as the fire extinguisher, the record of work, and site conditions.
    • Smoke detectors must be 10 years old or less, and carbon monoxide detectors must be 7 years or less per manufacturer's labeling.
    • One 2A10BC fire extinguisher is required within the dwelling with a current (this year) label or tag in the kitchen and does not have to be hung on the wall.
  • If you fail inspection, the process is the same, with a $25.00 re-inspection fee.
