How can I obtain a temporary/conditional certificate of occupancy?

A building code official may issue a temporary certificate of occupancy (CO) for a portion or portions of the building or structure before the completion of the entire work covered by the permit if the portion or portions may be occupied safely. The building code official shall set a time period during which the temporary certificate of occupancy is valid.

In order to request a temporary/conditional certificate of occupancy in Easttown Township, kindly submit the following:

  1. Letter of instruction signed by the permit holder requesting a conditional CO referencing the open building permit number, property address, and date by which the project is expected to be completed.
  2. $10,000 check deposit* to be held in escrow until project completion. 

*Please note projects related to an open subdivision plan may be subject to a different deposit amount.
