New Baden Occupancy Inspection

An Occupancy Permit is required from the Village of New Baden whenever occupancy is established or changed in a residential structure. This includes all homes, trailers, apartments, etc. The Village is not specific as to who is required to obtain the permit, but the ultimate responsibility lies with the owner of the property. The purpose of the inspections is to maintain the quality of the Village's housing and building stock over time by requiring violations to be corrected prior to each occupancy.

An Occupancy Inspection should not be confused with a professional home inspection. The Village checks for cosmetic issues and does not insure such inspections for any use as a home warranty. The process is simple and requires an application and fee to set up an inspection time with the Village Inspector. Once there is an approved inspection, a permit is generated and given to the applicant unless there are other instructions given to the applicant, regarding the permit disposition.

The fee for the Occupancy Permit Inspection is $50.00.  Applicants shall receive one (1) re-inspection at a rate of $25.00.  The fee for any subsequent inspections shall be equal to the original permit fee.

If property is occupied before a permit is issued the inspection fee will be $100.00 and one (1) re-inspection fee of $50.00.  The fee for any subsequent inspections shall be equal to the original permit fee. 

This fee must be paid prior to the inspection at Village Hall or at the time of the inspection.  Contact the Chief Building & Zoning Official to set up your inspection appointment.   

Please return the application to Village Hall.
