Certificate of Occupancy
As to the issuance procedure of certificates of occupancy, first a file must be formed and the required documents must be submitted, including the original and photocopy of the deed, the original Birth Certificate, the deposit slip of the renovation levies payment for the current year, and the owner(s) must approach in person or represented by their agents on showing valid powers of attorney. The supervisor engineer must show the day-to-day reports. After this phase, the inspection reports of the supervisor engineer must be entered. The current status of the building is usually reported together with the building violations, and the blueprint of the property’s location is drawn, followed by the floor plan and the façade. Then it comes to the determination of violations. If there are no violations, the file is sent to the calculations phase, which includes the levies payment deposit slip, the supervisor engineer’s report on completion and the building completion sheet. The building completion sheet phase includes the draft certificate of occupancy and approvals of the head of inspection. However, if there are building violations, they will be examined by the internal commission or article 100 commissions. The approvals of the head of inspection, Urban Development Assistant and the municipality are issued subsequently and submitted to the secretariat of the municipality of the respective district.
