No land or building erected or altered in its use of structure shall be used until the Building Official shall have issued a certificate of occupancy stating that the land or building and its proposed use are found to be in conformity with the provisions of this chapter. Within three days after notification that a building or premises is ready for occupancy or use, it shall be the duty of the Building Official to make a final inspection and to issue a certificate of occupancy if the land or building and its proposed use are found to conform with the provisions of this chapter; or, if the certificate is refused, to state the refusal in writing with the cause. A temporary certificate of occupancy may be issued by the Building Official for a period not exceeding six months during alterations or partial occupancy of a building pending its completion, provided that the temporary certificate may require the conditions and safeguards as will protect the safety of the occupants and the public.
