New Jersey Revised Statutes § 40:55d-56 - Certificates Showing Approval; Contents

40:55D-56. Certificates showing approval; contents
The prospective purchaser, prospective mortgagee, or any other person interested in any land which forms part of a subdivision, or which formed part of such a subdivision 3 years preceding the effective date of this act, may apply in writing to the administrative officer of the municipality, for the issuance of a certificate certifying whether or not such subdivision has been approved by the planning board. Such application shall contain a diagram showing the location and dimension of the land to be covered by the certificate and the name of the owner thereof.

The administrative officer shall make and issue such certificate within 15 days after the receipt of such written application and the fees therefor. Said officer shall keep a duplicate copy of each certificate, consecutively numbered, including a statement of the fee charged, in a binder as a permanent record of his office.

Each such certificate shall be designated a "certificate as to approval of subdivision of land," and shall certify:

a. Whether there exists in said municipality a duly established planning board and whether there is an ordinance controlling subdivision of land adopted under the authority of this act.

b. Whether the subdivision, as it relates to the land shown in said application, has been approved by the planning board, and, if so, the date of such approval and any extensions and terms thereof, showing that subdivision of which the lands are a part is a validly existing subdivision.

c. Whether such subdivision, if the same has not been approved, is statutorily exempt from the requirement of approval as provided in this act.

The administrative officer shall be entitled to demand and receive for such certificate issued by him a reasonable fee not in excess of those provided in R.S. 54:5-14 and 54:5-15. The fees so collected by such official shall be paid by him to the municipality.
