Occupancy Inspection Details
A property in the City of Florissant can be sold without an inspection ‘as is’. However, the buyer will then be responsible for obtaining and paying for the inspection and attaining occupancy permit prior to anyone moving into or occupying the property.
The City of Florissant takes pride in its community and housing stock. Minimum standards for dwelling units were created to protect the public safety, health and general welfare of the people of the city. The general objectives are to:
- To protect the character and stability of residential properties.
- To provide minimum standards for cooking, heating and sanitary equipment necessary to health and safety of occupants of building.
- To provide facilities for light and ventilation necessary to health and safety.
- To provide minimum standards for maintenance of existing residential buildings, and to thus prevent the creation of slums and blight.
- To preserve the property value of land and buildings throughout the city.
Occasionally there will be differences in the inspection report from the City of Florissant and a private inspection company or FHA/VA. It is recommended that the buyer note any problems during their final walk-through and use the inspection report results from all sources rather than comparing one report against another for discrepancies.
Prior to occupying a commercial building, which includes such uses as schools, churches, community organizations, an occupancy inspection and permit are required. In most cases a business license is also required. Applications for a business license and commercial occupancy inspection may be obtained from the Florissant Finance Department at the Florissant City Hall. The Building Commissioner reviews all commercial occupancy requests for compliance to the Florissant Zoning Code.
Should you have any questions regarding business licenses please call the Finance Department at 314-839-7611. For more information regarding commercial occupancy inspections please call the Public Works Department at 314-839-7648.

Sewer Lateral Program Details
The City of Florissant’s Residential Sewer Lateral Insurance Program covers the cost of repairing a defective residential sanitary sewer lateral in the City of Florissant.
Under this program, homeowners pay a $28.00 annual fee, which is included on the real estate property tax bills issued to homeowners each year.
The portion of the residential sewer lateral that is covered under this program runs from the main sewer line up to within five feet of the residential dwelling unit. The homeowner is responsible for the cost of repair or replacement of their sewer lateral inside their home and within five feet of the residential dwelling.
The program does not cover septic tank systems, private treatment systems or the cost to replace any trees, shrubs, flowers, sod, decks, concrete work (except for sidewalk and street work), retaining walls or out-buildings that may be damaged during repair of the sewer lateral. The program will cover only sanitary sewer laterals that connect to the main sewer system. The program is responsible for covering the repaired sewer lateral site with clean fill soil, including seeding the area.
This program does not apply to commercial, industrial or multi-family properties with more than six dwelling units.
What constitutes an emergency repair?
A lateral that is severely clogged and cabling the lateral by a St. Louis County licensed certified plumber or drain layer is unsuccessful is considered an emergency repair. The clog must be so severe that nothing can pass through the lateral. In a case where there are numerous emergency repairs pending, they are repaired in the order received. If there is only one emergency repair pending, it will be moved in front of all pending repairs but only after the paperwork has been approved by the City Engineer and the Street Department has contacted Missouri One Call in which all underground lines have been located. The locating of underground lines through Missouri One Call takes a minimum of 48 hours.
*** 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.
