Bethlehem Township To Streamline Home Inspections
After meeting with Commissioner Marty Zawarski, Planning Director Nathan Jones reported at the June 1 Board meeting that inspectors are making changes to be more responsive. They will now perform home inspections and issue renewed certificates of occupancy at eh request of a homeowner. "The smoother we can make it for the residents out there, the better off everyone will be," explained Zawarski.
Planners are now tied into the Lehigh Valley Association of Realtors website, and can see if private home sales are occurring without notice. Zawarski explained that in foreclosures, estate sales and other private deals, the Township often gets no notice of a real estate transfer.
