Robbinsdale's Point of Sale ordinance requires a disclosure inspection report prepared by independent certified evaluators (hired by the seller). The inspectors are scheduled by the seller by contacting the certified evaluator directly from the list which is linked below. Licensed evaluators walk through homes prior to their being placed on the market and shown for sale. This applies to all single family homes, twin homes, duplexes, townhouses, and condominiums (except new construction). Reports indicate items which are acceptable, below standards, and require repairs. Required repairs include imminent structural failures, unsafe electrical and plumbing systems, hazardous or unsanitary conditions, and lack of basic items (sinks in kitchens, toilet facilities, etc.). For more information see links below or contact Shari Ross at 763-531-1269.
The Point of Sale inspection must be performed by a certified evaluator. Any person qualified to perform POS or truth-in-housing inspections in the cities of Minneapolis, St. Paul or Bloomington can become certified in Robbinsdale. To obtain certification, an application and documentation of the qualifications from the above cities, insurance, and sign-off of the Code of Ethics form are required.A form is required for buyers assuming responsibility from sellers for repair/replace items identified in the Disclosure Report, see link to form below. The Building Official may need to inspect Repair/Replace items listed in the Point of Sale report before a Buyers Agreement is approved. Be sure to allow time for this process prior to your closing.
