ABC Park

The basketball courts at ABC Park are in bad shape. No backboards, and no nets. I took my nephew there twice over the past month and it was not even useable. If we let the parks get this bad, it becomes open season to others to do the same in the are. Let's keep Ridley clean and take care of our parks.See More

Use and occupation certificate

Posted by Margaret Faggiolo on June 30, 2016 at 3:35pm 4 Comments

Does anyone know where to find written codes for this rental inspection? I find it ridiculous that I cannot have downspout drain into driveway or sidewalk. Must drain into grass? Really??? Some of Borough buildings are in violation as well as probably half of private homes. Inspector makes his declaration but would actually like to see in writing. Supposedly EPArules. My rental is in good condition but this nitpicking just makes me want to sell and get out of RP. Not worth owning property…


Someone explain this borough to me

Posted by Michelle O on May 21, 2016 at 10:00am 9 Comments

Three and a half years ago I moved to this town. I rented a house for a little over a year, and then purchased a house near the lake after that.  Thus began my nightmare stay in Ridley Park.

Being a first-time homebuyer, I'm sure I made some mistakes. The house I purchased had been vacant for some time and the man who sold it (a realtor), flipped it.  He purchased the house in January 2014 and I bought it from him in July 2014. It apparently met whatever requirements the…

Changing Tactics for Use and Occupancy Certificates

Posted by Howard McCoy on April 15, 2016 at 6:00pm 4 Comments

Hearing that early 4,300 Realtors® delivered a definitive message to every member of the PA House that a ‘yes’ vote on House Bill 1437 by Rep. Jamie Santora (R-Delaware Co.) is what Pennsylvanian's wanted, the amendment passed 194-0 on Wednesday and has a third consideration after primary election day. 

HB 1437more clearly defines “unfit for habitation” to provide better guidance to local code enforcement officials who are conducting resale use and occupancy inspections. Many…
