Due to the evolving situation involving COVID-19, the Hillsborough Bureau of Fire Safety is temporarily suspending all CSACMAPFEC inspections and modifying the procedure for obtaining a Certificate of Smoke Alarm, Carbon Monoxide Alarm and Portable Fire Extinguisher Compliance (CSACMAPFEC) required under N.J.A.C 5:70-2.3(a). We are taking these protective measures to help ensure the safety of the residents and staff of Hillsborough Township. We are providing the sellers of 1 and 2-Family dwellings with two options.
Option #1- During this period, the sellers of 1 and 2 family dwellings may postpone their closing until such time that we resume the CSCMAPFEC inspections. Please note that we cannot provide a date when we will resume these inspections; or
Option #2- The seller will submit a CSACMAPFEC application and fee to Fire Safety and the Sellers, Buyers and their attorneys will complete the below affidavit. Under Option # 2, the Buyer will be assuming the responsibility to obtain the CSACMAPFEC at a later date after the closing. Fire Safety will review and approve the affidavit, email the “approved affidavit” to the parties and allow the closing to take place. If the seller and buyer agree to this procedure, we recommend that funds be held in escrow to cover any corrections that the buyer may be required to do, to obtain the CSACMAPFEC.
Please contact our office to obtain the approved affidavit or with any questions 908-369-4313 ext. 7178 or fire firstname.lastname@example.org
