What inspections are needed, and who do I call?

You will need inspections done by the Building Inspector (or his/her designee) and the Fire Marshal.  The purpose of the inspections is to determine the occupancy limit of the unit pursuant to § 314-8 of this chapter, to determine if smoke and Carbon Monoxide (CO) detectors are installed in compliance with the State Fire Code for dwelling units and to determine the number of off-street and on-street parking spaces available. The Building Official or his/her designee shall issue a short-term rental permit stating the maximum occupancy for the dwelling unit.

You are responsible for calling the Building Official (401-683-3611) and the Fire Marshal (401-683-1200) to set the appointments for inspection.
