FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is an occupancy permit?

An occupancy permit, or certificate of occupancy, is a document issued by a local government agency or building department certifying a building’s compliance with applicable building codes and other laws, and indicating it to be in a condition suitable for occupancy. There are different tests required for Massachusetts and Rhode Island. If you have questions, just give us a call at (508) 567-4240 and we’ll do our best to help.

I need to have a Blower Door Test done to get an occupancy permit?

Yes. We have BPI certified technicians available to help you navigate these new rules and get you the certificate you will need to get an occupancy permit for your new home.

Why do I need an occupancy permit?

Building inspectors are now enforcing these measures for new constructions. Building codes have changed, and the way builders assemble homes is more energy conscious than ever before. Because of this, the home is air sealed and insulated by the builder. We perform these tests regularly and  can get your home passed and occupied.
