Property Inspections

The Town of Forest City requires that all rental property, such as single family dwellings, duplexes, and all commercial properties, be inspected prior to renting. This does not, however, include apartments.

Property inspections allow the Town Inspector to document the condition of the rental dwelling before you move in. The inspector checks each room thoroughly for minimum housing code compliance providing you with a form that you can share with the property owner and/or landlord. This form documents the repairs the landlord may need to make or simply establish the problems that existed before you moved in. Using this form protects the landlord as well as the tenant.
