Responsibility of the Seller
A property under an active inspection process may be sold without having all Housing Code violations repaired. However, once a Notice of Violation is issued, a seller must have the buyer sign an Affidavit of Disclosure, which can be obtained from the Department of Neighborhood and Economic Operations.
Responsibility of the Buyer
The signed and notarized affidavit and copy of the sales document(s) must be submitted to the Department of Neighborhood and Economic Operations.
Once received, the buyer becomes responsible for all remaining repairs and fees and must file a NOORPR property registration within 45 days of close of sale.
