Rental Units

Owners of rental property in Plymouth, Terryville, and Pequabuck are required to have all rental units inspected and a Certificate of Compliance issued at each change of tenancy.  The code provision applies to both single family and multi-family homes.

Section 8-50 of the town of Plymouth Housing Ordinance requires "periodic inspections of all multi-family dwellings, dwelling units, rooming units and premises."  The purpose of this inspection is to ensure that properties meet the basic requirements of the Housing Code.  Violations commonly discovered in the inspection of rental units include, missing or malfunctioning smoke detectors, which are required in basements, common hallways, dwelling unit halls and bedrooms.  Other common violations include broken electrical plugs or incorrectly wired outlets, ground faults not installed within 6' of a sink or laundry, leaking plumbing or broken fixtures, unsafe or poorly maintained heating equipment, missing or damaged screens and storm windows and doors.

Per ordinance, it is the responsibility of the property owner to register all tenants with the Building Department.  This is required with each change in tenants.  There is no charge for the initial inspection for tenant changes or for your periodic inspection, however this is a charge of $15.00 (per unit) for the first re-inspection and $20.00 (per unit) for every re-inspection thereafter.  Copies of the Housing Ordinance are available for review in the Building Department between 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Please contact the Building Department at (860) 585-4007 to schedule your inspection.  Inspections will be scheduled Monday through Friday between 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  If there is a problem with these inspection times we are willing to work with you in scheduling an inspection that is convenient.  It will be your responsibility to notify your tenant(s) of this inspection.  If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact the Building Department.
