Businesses NOT Involving Construction Permits or a Change of Use
When a business moves into a space where a construction permit is NOT involved or there is a NO Change of Use, the space requires a Commencement of Use Approval, Certificate of Life/Non-Life Hazard Use, and a Certificate of Compliance prior to any business operations in that space. ALL APPLICATIONS MUST BE COMPLETED ONLINE BY CLICKING THE ONLINE APPLICATION LINKS BELOW.
Non-Condominium vs. Condominium Business Space
Much like a residential dwelling condominium (Condo), a Condominium Business Space is a space owned by a business within a larger subdivided building with a common area available to all other Condominiums. Although the required Certificates and Approvals are the same for that of a Non-Condominium space, the procedures and timing of obtaining these Certificates and Approvals are different. Following the links below for the appropriate business type space will guide you in the right direction.
Non-Condominium Business Space
The Non-Condominium Business Space requires only two (2) online Applications, which are to be completed by the BUSINESS OWNER. In order to receive your required Approvals, both Applications must be submitted. For an overview of the process and fees click here for our Non-Condominium Business Registration Workflow & Fees handout.
Condominium Business Space
The Condominium Business Space requires three (3) online Applications. The Application for an Occupancy Certificate for a Business Condominium must be completed by the CURRENT OWNER of the Condominium. In addition, the CURRENT OWNER must also obtain the required inspections PRIOR to the sale of the Condominium in order to obtain the Certificate of Compliance.
The Non-Life Hazard Registration for a Business Condominium (Business Registration) Application and the Zoning Commencement of Use Approval are to be completed by the OWNER OF THE NEW BUSINESS moving into the space.
- Occupancy Certificate for the Sale of a Business Condominium (Completed by the current Condominium owner)
- Business Registration (Completed by the new business owner)
- Zoning Commencement of Use Approval (Completed by the new business owner)
NO BUSINESS IS PERMITTED TO OPERATE IN HOLMDEL TOWNSHIP UNTIL A COMMENCEMENT OF USE APPROVAL, CERTIFICATE OF APPROVED NON-LIFE HAZARD USE, AND CERTIFICATE OF COMPLIANCE ARE OBTAINED.
