Are you planning on selling your property? – If so, the Borough of West Grove adopted an ordinance that a Transfer Inspection must be done prior to settlement.  The forms can be found on our website under Borough Information and Forms & Applications.  You will need to print the Transfer of Property Application, the Transfer of Property Inspection List and the Sewer & Water Certification Form.  The inspection is scheduled about one month prior to settlement to allow time in case of failing the inspection.  Please follow everything on the Inspection List because that is what our Inspector will be inspecting.  The Sewer & Water Certification is done a day or two prior to settlement so we can check the meter and get a reading so the sellers are billed for the water they have consumed before moving.  If you have any questions, please call Trisha or Sharon at 610-869-2792.  Thanks!

Are you planning on renting your property? – Have you decided to rent your house?  If so, the Borough of West Grove adopted an ordinance that any property used as a rental in the Borough of West Grove must have a Rental Inspection completed prior to the tenant moving in.  The forms can be found on our website under Borough Information and Forms & Applications.  You will need to print the Residential Application Form, Page One, the Residential Application Form, Page Two, and the Residential Rental Inspection List.  The inspections are done on Thursday mornings.  The inspection is required once a year.  If you have any questions, please call Trisha or Sharon at 610-869-2792.  Thanks!
