Home Fire Inspections

For Sale or Rental of One- & Two-Family Homes

In order to sell or rent your one- or two-family home in the Township of Livingston you must complete a Home Fire Inspection, which will be conducted by the Livingston Fire Department. This is required and you will not be able to sell your home or allow a renter to occupy the premises until the property has passed the inspection. 

Please call the Livingston Fire Prevention Bureau (973-992-2373) Monday through Friday to schedule a Smoke Detector Inspection. We kindly ask that you call to schedule an inspection 10 to 14 days prior to your closing.

There is a required $50 fee for each initial inspection. For each re-inspection required following an unsuccessful initial inspection, there is an additional charge of $25. Please make all checks payable to the Township of Livingston.
