Rental Dwelling Unit Inspections

On September 1, 2021, the Board of Health will be resuming the requirement that all rental dwelling units will be inspected under the provisions of the Code of the Town of Williamstown, Chapter 154, Rental Units, for compliance with Massachusetts Department of Public Health Regulation 105 CMR 410.000, Minimum Standards of Fitness for Human Habitation.

There will continue to be a sliding scale of inspection fees depending on whether: the unit is unoccupied at the time of inspection; the unit is occupied at the time of inspection; or a complaint has been filed on a unit not certified by the Board of Health.

The Board of Health also has adopted The Code of the Town of Williamstown, Chapter 146, Local fines to address noncompliance.

Please ensure that your rental units undergoing new tenancies on September 1, 2021, and thereafter, are properly inspected by the Board of Health, and a Certificate of Compliance has been issued.
