What is a Certificate of Occupancy Survey?
A certificate of occupancy is required by municipalities to validate the completion of a construction project. Needed for both new and existing projects, this type of document is required from its developers for all facilities of commercial, residential and public nature. A certificate of occupancy can be necessary for any of the following situations:
- The construction of a new building.
- A building is being modified to suit a different purpose than the one it was initially built for.
- The occupancy of an industrial or commercial building changes.
- The ownership of an industrial, residential or commercial building changes.
A certificate of occupancy needs to show the conditions of the finished building in comparison to the development plans that were previously approved by the municipality. The document needs to show that the structure is inhabitable according to local laws. As an essential part of a building permit, a certificate of occupancy needs to be accurate and comprehensive. With this as their goal, certificate of occupancy surveyors go through all the specific requirements in an area, ensuring that there will be no hiccups or problems whenever it is time for the document to be submitted.
