City Zoning Code requires that all purchasers of property in the City of Newark sign a statement called a Deed Transfer Affidavit, sometimes referred to as a Buyer’s Affidavit. The statement certifies that the purchaser has been told about the zoning of the property being acquired, zoning of adjacent land, and if applicable, the location of the 100-year floodplain in relationship to the property. At least one person whose name will appear on the deed must contact the Planning and Development Department to complete the process. There is no fee for the affidavit and it can be completed via phone, email, or in person by appointment. The Planning and Development Department office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. If you prefer to meet in person, call the Planning and Development Department to schedule an appointment.
