Pre-Sale Inspections

All residential properties are required to apply for a pre-sale inspection at the time of listing the property.  Subsequently, the building and property will be inspected and a list of all violations, if any, will be made.  The buyer has the option to prepare a legal, notarized affidavit, allowing the purchaser to assume responsibility for the violations.  The buyer will typically be given 30 days to correct the violations after the day of closing.  The Village of Franklin Park currently adheres to the BOCA 2006, 2005 NEC & Property Maintenance 2006 codes.

PLEASE NOTE: No “For Sale” signs are allowed prior to the completion of the Pre-Sale Application.

  • An original Plat of Survey, not older than six months, submitted three days prior to closing.
