Selling or Renting

The Village of Hainesville requires an Occupancy Inspection whenever a new tenant moves into a home either through rental or sale of the property. If you are renting your home, please call us before a new renter is moved in so we may do the inspection. If you are selling your home, please call us to schedule an inspection when there is a contract on your home. You will need the Certificate in order to close; Hainesville does not have a transfer tax. There is a penalty if an inspection is not done. Inspections are done Monday through Thursday mornings only beginning at 8:00 a.m. Please notify us at the latest the day before by 2:00 p.m. to schedule the inspection and at that time payment will also need to be made. Attached is an Occupancy Inspection checklist. Please be aware that the list is NOT all inclusive but it does give you an idea as to what the inspector will be looking for during the inspection. The inspection is to ensure that the home meets basic life/safety requirements as specified in the 2012 International Residential Code.
