Newport – Fire/Smoke Inspections need to be completed last – all permits must be closed prior to sale of a property

Video from Membership presentation The Fire Chief has informed Realtors that the inspections for smoke certificates should be done as the final inspection for the sale of a property.  Too often, other inspections, like past or present permits have not been completed and/or closed.  Listing agents should to do a ‘search for outstanding permits‘ when listing a property and have the property owner complete them before a fire inspection is ordered as the fire inspections will not happen until all permits on the property are closed.  Here is the search link PERMITS
