Certificate of Occupancy:
A certificate of occupancy is a document issued by a government agency that certifies a building or structure is safe to be occupied and meets all necessary codes and regulations.
Let's say a builder just finished constructing a new house. Before the homeowner can move in, the local government's building department will need to inspect the property and issue a certificate of occupancy to ensure that the home is safe and up to code.
