Municipal Certificate of Continued Occupancy (MCCO)

As of January 1, 2019, a Municipal Certificate of Continued Occupancy (MCCO) is required when selling or renting a home in Piscataway to ensure the health, safety and general welfare of residents.

A Municipal Certificate of Continued Occupancy (MCCO) is required as a pre-condition for the continued occupancy, in whole or in part, of any existing residential dwelling. This document is issued by the Township upon a determination that an existing residential dwelling continues to remain fit for human habitation. To learn more about MCCOs, please see Piscataway Township Ordinance No. 18-20

Inspections are conducted Monday through Friday between 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM as well as 1:30 - 3:30 PM, excluding holidays. Inspectors will have a Township vehicle and photo identification to present to homeowners before the inspection begins.

For an inspection appointment, please provide the completed MCCO application along with the appropriate fee to the Municipal Certificate of Continued Occupancy (MCCO) Office in the Public Works Center.

The fee schedule is as follows:

  • MCCO for a single-family home, condo, or townhome: $150 per unit
  • MCCO for a two-family: $150 per unit ($300 total) 
  • Temporary MCCO: $125 per unit 
  • Reinspections: $100 per unit from the third inspection and any following
Please note, if any work was performed without a permit and one was required, you will be required to obtain the permit and close any open permits before an MCCO will be issued.
