In many cases, an inspection by a building official is required upon completion of a structure. The official will issue a Certificate of Occupancy, which must be obtained prior to the use or occupancy of the structure. Such a certificate verifies that a building or structure, and the proposed use thereof, complies with all applicable building and zoning regulations.
