Richfield Point of Sale Inspections

Point-of-Sale Inspections will not be conducted for the time period covered by Governor Walz’s Stay At Home Order (3/27-4/10).  Following the lifting of the Stay At Home Order, Point-of-Sale Inspections shall be resumed or limited.   Please contact City of Richfield Housing Inspections staff during normal business hours to discuss your particular needs.

What is the "Point of Sale" Housing Inspection Program?

In 1989, The Richfield City Council passed an ordinance which requires that all single family and two-family homes in the City (including condominiums) that transfer title after October 1, 1990, be inspected by the City of Richfield Inspection Division and a Certificate of Housing Maintenance be obtained prior to the transfer of ownership or closing.  The ordinance (Section 408.01) is also available for review.  An application form must be completed and returned to the City, along with the appropriate fee.
