Housing Inspection Program Del City, Oklahoma

Real Estate Agent with CENTURY 21 Goodyear Green Edmond, OK

In today's Oklahoman, I read an interesting article by Bryan Dean about the Housing Inspection Program in Del City.  It's a relatively new ordinance that requires the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy prior to a new tenant or homeowner moving into a home.  Without the Certificate of Occupancy the utilities will not be transferred to the new resident.

I had not heard about this new ordinance prior to reading the article today.  So, I have researched a bit further and here is a bit more about the program;

To obtain a Certificate of Occupancy in Del City an application must be submitted to the Community Services Department at 4517 SE 29 Monday through Friday between 8:00 and 5:00.  There is an application fee of $40.  An inspection will then be scheduled.  The inspector is going to check; the exterior of the property, the interior, general sanitation, occupancy limitations, light, ventilation, plumbing, mechanical systems, electrical systems, and fire safety.  The property owner, agent, and/or potential occupant must be present during the inspection.  If not, there will be a $100 reinspect fee charged.

You should keep in mind that this inspection does not take the place of a Whole House Inspection.  As a Realtor, I recommend that you always opt to use the services of a licensed home inspector when purchasing a home.

If you have a Del City house for sale, you do have the ability to obtain a "Preclearance."  A preclearance inspection can be scheduled for the same $40 fee.  The inspection is valid for 180 days.  You may consider doing this when listing your Del City house for sale.  It could help to avoid delays when selling.
