Occupancy Inspection Details
Brentwood conducts residential and commercial permitting and inspections for construction and occupancy. St. Louis County does not perform these inspections.
Do I need to have an Occupancy Permit if I am a renter?
Yes. Any new tenant, whether renting or owning, is required to have an occupancy permit.
How do I obtain an Occupancy Permit?
The current owner or landlord is responsible for arranging a housing inspection. After the unit has passed the inspection, the new tenant or owner completes the application for Residential Occupancy Permit and pays a $45 charge. The application must be completed and payment must be made before the permit certificate is issued. If you are financing the home purchase, most lenders will require you to have the occupancy permit prior to closing the loan.
What does the inspection cost?
The inspection is done at no cost to the current owner, who generally pays for the necessary repairs, if any. We will not issue an occupancy permit unless the house passes the inspection.
Six months. If the unit has remained unoccupied during that period, we can extend the expiration of the inspection.
It is not recommended you do this. The inspection done by a professional home inspector as a part of your purchase of a home is much more thorough than the city’s inspection. We look primarily for life, health and safety issues. We do not look, for example, at the condition of the furnace or the anticipated future life of the roof system. The private inspector will give you a report on those types of things.

Sewer Lateral Program Details
Who is covered:
The City of Brentwood’s sewer lateral repair program applies to single-family residential and to single-family fee simple ownership. The service is not available to commercial or industrial property (as determined by the use of the land). The property owner of a townhouse, duplex, condominium, or a multi-family building containing not more than six (6) dwelling units, is eligible to participate in compliance with the City’s policy and procedures governing this program. This program is not available to apartment buildings.
A defective lateral sewer service line is defined as a line that is not functioning properly.
The financial responsibility for contracted repairs to a covered defective sewer lateral approved by the City is limited to closed-circuit television inspection (CCTV) services, excavation, repair or replacement of the defective portion of the lateral line, and backfilling in a workmanlike manner. It will be the responsibility of the property owner to restore the landscaping and ground cover including grass in whatever manner that is consistent with any applicable property standards of the City the owner chooses. The City will not be responsible for restoration of the affected yard to the grass or landscaped surfaces, i.e., bushes, shrubs, trees, and plants.
It will be the responsibility of the City to replace sidewalks, driveways and streets, which are removed to accomplish the repair. In the event it is necessary to remove accessory structures such as fences, retaining walls, and the like, the property owner will be obligated to remove and restore such accessory structures to their pre-existing condition. In the event that obstacles such as yard sheds, garages, etc. are in the path of the sewer lateral and lie over the damaged portion of the lateral, the City reserves the right to require rerouting of the lateral to avoid the necessity of structure removal. In the event that rerouting is impractical, the City and the property owner will meet to discuss a solution equitable to both parties.
The Board of Aldermen updated the sewer lateral repair program in February 2019. Resolution 1084.2 involves these changes: Cabling/cleaning blockages is now the property owner’s responsibility. The cost ceiling for approved repairs is limited to $3,500 per calendar year.

*** Please Note: Most municipalities, cities, and counties with sewer lateral programs limit reimbursements and expenses to the amount available in the Fund at any time. Some offer waiting lists and reimbursements out of the next year’s Fund revenue. Funds typically are on a first-come, first-served basis. You should always check on fund availability. Additionally, most municipalities will require proof of PAID real estate tax bills, city fees, taxes, including personal property taxes, and trash fees if applicable for eligibility to participate in any available programs.
