Resale Inspection (Online Payment)

Resale inspections are typically completed within 7 days of submitting payment. Payment must be made by credit card, with processing by PayPal (no PayPal account is required). You will receive notice by email from PayPal and RVFD when payment is complete.

You do not need to be present for the inspection. Inspectors do not need to enter the residence. Completing the Resale Inspection Payment Form grants permission to Fire Department personnel to conduct an exterior inspection of the property, including access to all exterior spaces.

A Resale Inspection Report will be emailed upon completion of the inspection. Violations identified in the report must be corrected within 30 days.
