Buyers and Sellers of real estate should always hire a real estate agent who is familiar with the local municipal Code concerning their property.
In the Village of Quogue, as of July 2013, transacting parties will be required to have a new Certificate of Occupancy issued within 3 months either before or after the change of ownership.
This rules is a result of the Village of Quogue amending its Village Code, which happens all too often in many municipalities to be able to keep track of them all. Now, Chapter 196 of the Village Code has been amended by adding new subsection "F" to section 196-61, which can be read by clicking here.
So, the reason that you need a real estate agent familiar with the local municipal Code is evidenced by the fact that I only learned about this new Code section from my friend, Ed Kurosz, of the Corcoran Group.
