Bill summary

Senate committee substitute to the 1st edition makes the following changes. Removes the proposed language in 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). Instead, adds a new provision to provide that when a subsequent inspection is conducted to verify completion or correction of instances of Code noncompliance, any additional violations of the Code that the inspector notes on items that were already approved by the inspections department will not delay the issuance of a temporary certificate of occupancy. Prohibits charging a fee for the reinspection of those items. Maintains the January 1, 2022, effective date.
