A certificate of occupancy (CO) is important for any rental property owner as it essentially confirms that your property is fit for occupancy and among other things, outlines what the property will be used for, that it is suitable for occupancy and that it is compliant with all building codes and regulations. A Long Island tenant attempting to obtain a CO for his deli decided to complete the electrical work and make necessary upgrades to the space himself. That involved adding fixtures and outlets, but ultimately his request for a CO was denied due to the wiring being unsatisfactory.
In order to take ownership of the space, the tenant needed to make sure that the electrical work was up to snuff. To that end, the building’s landlord decided to enlist the help of Absolute Electric to rewire the space correctly so that the tenant could receive his CO and eventually conduct business as usual. The importance of relying on the expertise and real-world experience possessed by a qualified electrician for important matters involving the livelihood of your business should never be understated. With the proper assistance, execution and adherence to the rules, obtaining a CO is well within reach.
