How long is a certificate of occupancy good for?
Category: Change of Ownership (Resale/Re-rental)
Once you come in and apply for a certificate of occupancy and pay the $200 fee and schedule the inspection, the inspection is good for nine months from the date of the initial inspection. If after nine months, the house is not sold, the application and inspection process must start all over again.
Once the certificate of occupancy inspection passes and the certificate of occupancy is written and issued, it is good for 90 days.
