What can I do if my inspections are not finalized and I must move in?

You may contact the Building Code Official in the Department of Development and Permits and apply for a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy. However, the following are guidelines to apply for a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy:

  1. The building permit holder is the only party eligible to request a temporary certificate of occupancy.
  2. All inspections (plumbing, electrical, mechanical, gas) except building final must be finalized. A final building inspection must be done before applying.
  3. If the property is located in the flood zone, the FEMA letter is required.
  4. Septic tank and /or well water approval letters must be received in this office.
  5. A review of any rejected or outstanding issues will be considered prior to issuing a temporary certificate of occupancy.

Should the applicant fail to renew and / or complete inspections / conditions of a permit authorized a temporary occupancy, this privilege will be suspended until full compliance is achieved.
