A Certificate of Occupancy, indicating completion of all work for which a permit was issued, shall be obtained prior to any use or occupancy of a building or structure. After all approved inspections, (to include final electrical, final grading and final building inspection), a Certificate of Occupancy will be issued by the Code Official. Due to the processing time required to verify supporting documents and collection of all inspector's paperwork, the Certificate of Occupancy will be issued by the end of the second business day following the approval and documentation of all three inspections.
Please consider these processing regulations when scheduling real estate closings and/or building occupancy dates. Final building inspections that are rescheduled due to corrections must still comply with these processing regulations.
