Certificate of Occupancy

A Certificate of Occupancy is a document that notifies owners, buyers, or other interested parties that required inspections have been performed and the structure is in compliance with the adopted building codes.

While inspections and the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy do not guarantee the structure is defect-free, it does provide a level of safety to occupants, as well as property protection that would not otherwise exist.

In lieu of a Certificate of Occupancy on remodels and small additions, a Certificate of Final Inspection may be issued as confirmation that all the inspections have been completed.

All required inspections and a Certificate of Occupancy must be obtained prior to transferring water service billing information.
