Yes, and I would advise you to get the CO ASAP as Neptune Township is notorious for nitpicking before granting COs.

Yes you do need either a c/o or a conditional c/o. I just closed a house in Neptune Twp with a conditional c/o. Have your attorney or Realtor advise you.

Hi there, generally a CO is required to close. Unless this is a short sale/bank owned home that is "as is" with buyer responsible for getting the CO, this is usually the responsibility of the seller, to arrange and pay for.

Townships have specific requirements - whoever (ie, Seller or Buyer) who is responsible for getting the CO, should speak to the town directly. It usually involves an inspection by the township fire bureau to test Smoke Detectors, Carbon Monoxide Detectors, and Fire Extinguisher for compliance, function, and placement.

Good luck to you on your closing!

Check with your mortgage broker for what is required for the mortgage loan funds to be released. In most cases you need a CO.

Contact the Building Office in Long Branch to see what's required. Some towns can be very picky, others only require only state mandated smoke detectors, carbon monoxde detectorsand fire extinguishers
