Three Family +4/5/2017
Selling Three Family + homes are a lot of work even if two out of the three units are vacant. State and City Inspections are very detailed oriented and time consuming, even for a three family built in 2006!.
1) Check with the state to see if there is a Green Card on file. When was at the last inspection, where there any deficiencies and are there any fines, do we have to schedule another inspection? If so, order the inspection right away!
2) File for OPRA.
3) Order Fire Inspection right away do not delay.
The state and the local fire codes require details inspections: Self closing front doors, any safety issues, peep holes or glass window doors for safety, fire rated doors, interior sprinkler test and secured valves, exit light battery test. This is very difficult to coordinate ESPECIALLY if the units are occupied. It is an incredible logistical nightmare to show units that are occupied.
Commission for Three Families is a mandatory 6%. No Negotiation.
