Business / Real Estate / Certificate Of Occupancy (CO): A certificate issued by a governmental authority indicating that a building is ready and fit for occupancy and that there are no building code violations. Some condominium developers insert language into the sales contract to the effect that upon notification that the units are ready for occupancy, the buyer must accept the unit despite any construction defects that may exist, although acceptance will not bar the buyer from obtaining redress for such defects. Once the building has been certified for occupancy the developer can then close the individual sales, transfer title to the buyers and, most important, begin to pay off the construction loan and eliminate the interest payments.
