Certificate of Occupancy for Residential Resale


As of July 6th, 2020 Flat Rock City Council approved Resale Inspections to be performed with a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy for resale on all Residential homes.

Please look at the Checklist of what our Inspectors will be looking at for their life safety inspection. Please fill out the Single Family Residential Certificate of Occupany Application to submit for a Certificate of Occupany. The Resale Inspection fee of $150.00 needs to be paid in full before the inspection is performed.

If your violations are to be assumed by the new home owner, they need to fill out an application for a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy.

All life safety issues must be corrected before occupancy.

If you have any questions please call the Building Office at 734-782-0445 or email jliedel@flatrockmi.org with filled out applications and/or concerns.
