Upon completion of the work, request a final inspection by calling Codes Compliance at 757-220-6136. When the work passes the final inspection, request a certificate of use and occupancy.
The certificate of use and occupancy is an essential step in the process. There may be considerations unrelated to the house construction in a development, such as sewer, water, and roads, which prevent the issuance of a certificate of use and occupancy even though the "building" is complete.
It is illegal to use or occupy any structure without a certificate of use and occupancy.
