If you are applying for a Certificate of Occupancy and your building permit included any exterior work, you must sign up for an HDC inspection. A Certificate of Appropriateness (COA) number was part of the building permit application process. If you “amended” that building permit, an additional COA number(s) were added to that building permit. You must include all Certificate of Appropriateness numbers as it relates to your building permit. Failure to include all revision numbers from the building permit may be subject to a $50.00 re-inspect fee.
Please check with the office before you sign up for an HDC inspection. Duplicate inspections may be subject to a $50.00 re-inspect fee.
