10 Real Estate Contract Conditions to Look Out For Once your offer is accepted on the purchase of your new home, your attorney will receive a real estate purchase contract which will be provided to you for review. When reviewing the contract here is a list of some items you should be sure to look out for.
A Certificate of Occupancy (CO) is a document issued by the New York City Building Department (DOB) which states a building’s legal occupancy limits, type of permitted occupancy and allowable use of the building (ex. Commercial retail store, industrial warehouse, 1 to 4 residential home, 50 unit condominium). New buildings must have a CO, and existing buildings must have a current or amended CO when construction will change their use, egress or type of occupancy. If a building doesn’t have a proper Certificate of Occupancy, the DOB could theoretically issue a vacate order and related violations at any time.
