Permits required for door-to-door sales

Posted on July 7, 2023


A license is required to conduct door-to-door sales in Somerville and authorized salespeople are provided with a permit that says “Licensed by the Borough of Somerville.”

The Borough does not have any current solicitor licenses on file. If you are approached by a solicitor at your home, please call the Police at 908-725-0331 (non-emergency number).

“Do Not Knock” Registry

It is prohibited for any person to conduct any commercial solicitation at any property listed on the Do-Not-Knock Registry. The list will be provided to any solicitor who is issued a license to conduct door-to-door sales. Registration on this list does not prohibit door-to-door solicitation by non-profit, charitable, religious or political organizations.

Add your address to the “Do Not Knock” list.

For more information, please review Chapter 124 of the Borough Code.
