When you establish your business, church, agency, school or organization in a new or existing building, you need a Certificate of Occupancy before you open your doors. Certificates of Occupancy also are required for parking lots and commercial storage buildings. They are not required for one- and two-family homes unless an inspector has issued a placard or the house has been vacant for more than six months. Complete the Occupancy Application in the Land Management System (LMS)
