How do I read an 9A Report? What should I be looking for?

The main thing I look for on the 9A report is if the property has any special tax assessments. Paragraph VI B. of the 9A report is what you want to look at to check if there are any special tax assessments. At the bottom of the liens and assessments, make sure the property is “cleared of all items“. This means that there are no special tax assessments.

In addition to assessment information the 9A report also has information on certificates of occupany, zoning, sewer permit, and an owner’s declaration that indicates retrofit compliance (LINK). These items are covered in other inspections and reports so they aren’t important.

In this example Paragraph IV B shows if there is a certificate of occupancy for the property and how many have been issued. The 9A report usually has all certificate of occupancy issued attached to the end of the report. In the below example 3 CofO’s were issued for the property.
