Inspections are good for one year. Property owners, who have previously received a Certificate of Compliance, wishing to sell a dwelling under five years old, will not need an inspection. However, it will still be the new owner’s/occupant’s responsibility to obtain an Occupancy Permit from City Hall.
Inspection fees are included in the Building Permit fee for newly constructed dwellings. Inspections must be scheduled with the Building Permit Office at appropriate times throughout the building process. The Occupancy Permit fee is also included in the Building Permit fee if occupancy immediately follows the issuance of Certificate of Compliance approval.
Inspections are done on Mondays from 9 am to 3 pm and Tuesday and Wednesday from 9 am to 2 pm for all residential occupancy permits.
There are a few different ways you can schedule and pay for your inspection:
We will not schedule your inspection until the form has been completed and payment has been made.
Once your inspection has been completed it will take 3 to 5 days to get the results of the inspection. If the property passed the inspection you will receive a Certificate of Compliance if the inspection did not pass you will receive an Inspection Report outlining the items that will need to be completed prior to issuance of Certificate of Compliance.
The seller (property owner) or seller’s representative needs to apply for the inspection.
