Occupancy inspections and permits should be obtained any time a property vacates/ populates. The occupancy inspection ensures the safety of the new inhabitants as well as updates any code corrections that may be present from normal wear and tear.  It also checks the safety of the structure, and determines the amount of people who can safely inhabit a property. Occupancy inspections and occupancy permits should be obtained BEFORE a person moves into a residence.

Business/Apartments $95.00 + Permit $10.00
