The Housing Office regulates rental properties in the Borough of Bernardsville by
certifying landlords are in compliance with the New Jersey State Minimum Housing
How long does an inspection take?
An inspection normally takes between 10-30 minutes, depending on the size of the unit and conditions.
Does the landlord have to be present?
No. The tenant or any adult representative may be present for the inspection.
What is the fee for registration?
The fee is $100.00 for each rental unit; this fee includes the registration and the initial inspection. If the property fails the initial inspection the Landlord will be given a list of violations and the property will be re-inspected. If there are still violations at re-inspection, a third inspection will be required; a fee of $50.00 must be paid prior to the third inspection.
What are the requirements for the fire extinguisher?
My units are registered with the State as a Multiple Dwelling, do I still need to register?
Yes. The units will still need an annual inspection, as well as the five year inspection provided by the State Bureau of Housing.
