Commercial Projects Requiring a Use and Occupancy (U&O) Certificate
A Use and Occupancy Certificate is required for all commercial space in Montgomery County. When the use or dimensions of the space have changed, a new Use and Occupancy Certificate is required. A Use and Occupancy permit certifies that a structure's purpose and construction standard meets the requirements for the zone in which it is located. Approval of the final inspection is permission to occupy the structure.
