What is a Certificate of Occupancy? – David Reecher
A Certificate of Occupancy is a document issued by a local government that certifies a home is ready to be occupied and complies with local building codes. The certificate is issued following an inspection by a licensed inspector on behalf of the local government. Certificates of Occupancy are required for any newly constructed building or conversion from a commercial to a residential building.
