Please note the following for the application and payment process for East Mckeesport Borough
Please find the Occupancy Application page HERE
ALL RENTAL PROPERTY AND PROPERTY OWNERS ARE REQUIRED to secure a CO (Certificate of Occupancy) or occupancy permit when tenants, property ownership, or property use has changed. This application for an inspection is required, and an inspection fee is payable in advance of the property inspection. The municipality determined the application fee based upon the property and configured it in the payment process.
The application is sent upon submission then reviewed for completeness, and an incomplete application (including phone numbers and email addresses) will not be accepted. In the event of an absentee landlord, a property manager must be named, with a mailing address and contact information for 24-hour contact. When submitted and completed, the application will be accepted. Then, We will contact you to schedule the Occupancy Inspection. The inspection will result in an FIR (Field Inspection Report) and be sent to the applicant(s) and others as required of the referenced inspection. The FIR is not to be considered the CO Permit. Instead, it is the report of the inspection results.
If the inspection shows no violations or violations with the Act 90 requirements, and all related municipal codes, then the CO Permit will be issued to all parties concerned. Typically in 2-5 days
If violations are noted, a CO may be issued with violations. An NOV (Notice of Violation) will be sent for the violations found under the inspection process. Typically in 30 days to the new owner, a signed and notarized affidavit is required.
Life Safety violations or Act 90 related violations will prevent a CO from being issued until all Act 90 related violations are corrected and, if required, re-inspected.
All inspections are in good standing for 30 days from the initial inspection. After thirty (30) days, a new application and fees are required for the subsequent inspections.
Each application and fee provides for an inspection and one re-inspection within 30 days of the initial inspection. All life safety requirements will be inspected at every inspection.
