It shall be unlawful for any owner, lessee or tenant to occupy any structure, building or land, or part thereof, erected, created, changed, converted or enlarged after April 26, 1968 unless a certificate of occupancy shall have been issued by the Building Inspector after inspection. Such certificate shall show and certify that all or part of the building, structure or premises has been constructed, altered or improved in compliance with the provisions of this chapter, the Building Code and other applicable laws, codes or regulations and all conditions and requirements stipulated by the Board of Appeals, if any. A temporary certificate renewable for one 6-month period, may be issued by the Building Inspector in those instances where due to weather, strikes and the like, full compliance with all controls has not been met and the issuance of the certificate would not endanger the safety and health of the occupants or public.
