I purchased a home 10 years ago and am now being told by the Code Enforcer in Manchester township that I have no CO for my home. They are telling me that one was never applied for and because I have a finished basement they were not aware of. I gave them a copy of the CCO that was done before my closing on the property and they told me that is not what they need, I showed them my other paperwork that proves that when I purchased the house I had a finished basement and they will not accept it as proof. They are telling me a CCO is for fire extinguishers and smoke detectors only and that they would not have gone into the basement at that time. I find this hard to believe. Can anyone give me any suggestions.

CCO is a Certficate for Continued Occupancy. They are pulling your chain, If in fact you are holding a CCO.

What are the repercussions if you don't have a CO? What do you need to do to get a CO?

Thank you so much Sergio M for responding. They are telling me that the CCO I have is for Fire Extinguisher and smoke detectors only. If a CCO is a Continued CO where is why do I need a CO? I am think I am going to have to make this a legal matter. Any suggestions?

A CO is obtained by the seller, not the buyer, so they seller is responsible for this. Call your attorney
