City/county/state officials aren't really directly involved. The title company will do the research to look for any liens or what have you, as well as making sure the deed is recorded.

Will a city official visit the property? Nope. You (hopefully) paid for the property to be inspected. And you'll do a final walk through, which is typically you (buyer) and your real estate agent.

The closing itself is signing a bunch of documents, and probably providing one or more checks. Closing could happen at a title company office, lawyer's office, realtor's office, bank, etc.

Your real estate agent and/or lawyer should be able to give you a clear idea of what to expect.

As said earlier, if new construction you need a C/O, but otherwise the C/O continues to be valid. You may be confused because some towns require a CCO (cert. of continued occupancy) but last I heard JC doesn't do this.


Sorry, just realized that I'm thinking of the certificate of inspection (aka green card) that comes out of the Bureau of Housing Inspection. It came up when we were selling our multifamily five years ago, but because we were owner-occupied in all three units, it didn't apply to us.

Your attorney should provide specifics but I think the state (not Jersey City) requires a certificate of occupancy for three or more unit multifamily buildings (aka green card). Not needed if all units are owner occupied.

Jersey City doesn't require C/O. The seller is required to obtain a carbon monoxide/Fire Extingusher certificate from the JCFD on Marin Blvd.

A condo requires a fire extinguisher. I don't know about a house.

Jersey City requires a Smoke Detector Certification. No C. O. required unless it's new construction.

I would pop into the building dept at 30 Montgomery, I think it's room 401 for zoning and simply ask.
They may want a picture of the property from the street.
You're smart to think of these things now, before closing.

I will be closing on a multfamily home soon in Jersey City
and i am working with an attorney but still would like to make sure I get relevant documents from the seller.

The jargon can be confusing sometimes.does the jersey city muncipality require seller to provide s certificate of occupancy?What does it entail? Is that only smoke certificate from town?I would like to make sure all relevant documents are handed over to me appreciate
