Home buyers are considering the purchase of a two-family home and have discovered that there is no certificate of occupancy on file. If they purchase the house they may want to change it from two duplexes to a triplex over a garden apartment. Since there is nothing on file, how difficult will it be for them to get a certificate of occupancy when they file for permits for any alterations?
Please chime in with your advice.
