So, yes, according to NJ law, a tenant should have had those inspections provided for by the landlord.
In regard to certificates of continuing occupamcy, as noted below, requirements vary from town to town.
Happy holidays & good luck.

Make sure you have proper licenses also so to protect yourself from legal problems in the event of required evictions. If you do not get a C/O prior to occupancy you will have a difficult time with NJ LAw , your township, and your tenants. Do not allow even a suit case to be moved in until the c/o is approved.
As I am not opposed to referring questions to an attorney. I think this one is not necessary a legal question as it is your towns requirements.
