Are there any exceptions to this regulation?

Yes. Property transfers that are exempt from inspections include:

  • Transfer from a spouse
  • Change in ownership solely to exclude a spouse
  • Transfer subject to life lease or life estate until its expiration
  • Transfer to effect foreclosure or forfeiture of real property (When the property is taken back by the bank, it is exempt. When the bank sells the property to another entity, it is not exempt from this Regulation.)
  • Transfer by redemption from a tax sale
  • Transfer creating or ending joint ownership if at least one person is an original owner of the property or his or her spouse
  • Transfer to establish or release a security interest
  • Premises built within 24 months prior to date of property transfer
  • Premises that shall be demolished and shall not be occupied after the property transfer
  • New homes that have not been occupied
