AN ACT TO PREVENT DELAY IN THE ISSUANCE OF TEMPORARY CERTIFICATES OF OCCUPANCY, TO CLARIFY ELECTRIC WIRING REQUIREMENT REFERENCES, AND TO MODIFY ONE- OR TWO-FAMILY DWELLING RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT FIRE APPARATUS ACCESS ROAD REQUIREMENTS.
Amends GS 160D-1104 concerning local government inspections for compliance with the NC Residential Code for One- and Two-Family Dwellings and the NC Building Code (Codes). Adds a new provision to prohibit the inspection department from charging an additional fee when a subsequent inspection to verify completion or correction of instances of Code noncompliance finds additional violations of either Codes that are outside the scope of the subsequent inspection and fall within an area or aspect of work for which a final inspection has already been conducted. Additionally prohibits delaying issuance of a temporary certificate of compliance pending completion of additional inspections to verify completion or correction of the additional violations. Specifies that the provisions do not prevent the local government from requiring suitable security to ensure code compliance pursuant to GS 160D-1116. Applies to inspections associated with permits applied for on or after January 1, 2022.
