Jackson Twp. Council Repeals Requirement For Home Inspections Prior To Sale

The Jackson Township Council on Wednesday night voted unanimously to repeal a Township code that requires home sellers to get a full home inspection before completing the sale.

The requirement cost residents many thousands of dollars, and sometimes even caused home sales to fall through, hurting residents and prospective residents alike.

The move comes on the heels of the Toms River Township Council repealing a similar requirement, which had been strongly advocated for by realtors.

It’s worth noting that while this code was successfully repealed in Jackson (pending a second reading), homeowners will still be required to have a fire and smoke alarm inspection before selling. That requirement is state law, and thus cannot be repealed by the Jackson Council.
