Real Estate can sometimes lack a Certificate of Occupancy. This usually occurs when a previous owner performed renovations without permits. It is possible to get a Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) by hiring an engineer to check if the building is up to code, and by performing any and all recommended repairs or corrections necessary to comply with codes
