A sewer and Stream Protection Fee certification is required for all real estate transactions, including refinancing, and all oustanding fees must be paid at the time of settlement.
Certifications are $50 each ($100 total for sewer and SPF) and must be paid at the time the request is made. Certification fees should be paid with two, separate $50 checks, both payable to "Borough of West Chester", and mailed or dropped off at Borough Hall:
Borough of West Chester Attn: Finance Department 401 E. Gay Street West Chester, PA 19380
Please request certifications at least 10 calendar days prior to settlement, and drop off or overnight payments if necessary - Certifications will not be provided until payment is received.
Failure to request certifications and pay outstanding fees, will result in an immediate property lien in the name of the buyers.
