Final Inspection
Before your Certificate of Occupancy (CO) can be issued, your project must pass final inspection. Please note that if your are building anything with wood, NC Code requires that it be treated for termites. We must have verification of the chemical used and concentration from your pest control company. They will fax us this information at your request. Also, if you are in the Town of Lake Lure, we must have verification that your project has been released from their Zoning Administrator. You may want to contact that department a week or two before scheduling your final. We also need verification from the RC Health Department that your septic and well have been released from their system.

Once you have an assigned building inspector, it is best to talk with him as he will know you, your site, and your project, and can best answer your questions or concerns. Until that time and for general inquiries, inspection/permit requests, or for correspondences related to your permit such as duct testing, penetrometer testing, termite verifications, permit applications, engineering designs, etc., please e-mail us at permits@rutherfordcountync.gov. Please be sure to reference your permit number if you have one assigned.
