Inspections Department to Discontinue In-Person Interior Building Inspections
Posted on Wednesday April 15, 2020
Effective Monday, April 13, 2020, Town of Aberdeen building inspectors will discontinue in-person interior building inspections for occupied commercial and residential properties until further notice. This includes mechanical, hot water heater change outs, and any other inspections that require building inspectors to enter the property. These changes are being made in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in order to protect the health of Town staff and the public and are consistent with guidance provided by the NC Department of Insurance on the use of Live Remote Inspections.

Building inspections are still required and can be accomplished remotely via live FaceTime, Duo for Android, photos, and paper documentation scanned and emailed to Town staff. Arrangements for the inspection can be made when calling to schedule the inspection. You will be contacted by an Inspector if more information is needed and/or to establish a time to perform the remote inspection.

All new construction building inspections will continue to be completed in-person. The Town of Aberdeen requests, however, that no other persons be on site during these inspections.

PLEASE NOTE: Some types of inspections may not be able to be completed by remote inspection, based on assessment of the video call by your inspector. If this happens, the inspector may ask for further documentation from you attesting compliance.

If there are any questions or concerns about an inspection, please contact the Inspections Department at 910-944-7024.
Thank you for your understanding.
