building inspection

A physical review of a property in the various stages of construction, to ensure the builder has complied with all requirements of the local building codes. Failure to pass a particular inspection may halt progress until the condition has been corrected. For example,no construction may proceed on a building until it has passed its foundation inspection. The local inspections department will not issue a certificate of occupancy (C/O) until the property has passed fire marshall review and any other inspections that may be required in the locale.In order to provide de facto enforcement of the rule prohibiting occupancy without a C/O,many utility companies will not provide permanent service without proof that one has been issued and will disconnect temporary service at the end of the originally anticipated completion date.
