A certificate of compliance is required by the Village when a property is sold. This process takes about two weeks to complete and begins when the sellers provide the Village with the closing date, buyer’s name, and submit a plat of survey no older than six months old. An appointment for a final water read and brief zoning inspection is scheduled 7-10 days before the planned closing date. Once the $325 compliance fee and final water bill is paid, the Village will stamp the signed and notarized deed for the County to record.
