What is a "Certificate of Occupancy", and when do I need to get one?
A "Certificate of Occupancy" shows that your construction has been completed properly within the parameters of the building permit. You should close out every building permit with a final inspection by the building inspector, including unoccupied items such as permanent signs, sheds, pools and fences. It is the last step of the permitting process, and is included in the permit fee if the work is completed within one year.
