CONSTRUCTION AND OCCUPANCY
Building construction should not commence until the Subsidizing Agency has granted Final Approval
and the Regulatory Agreement has been recorded with the Registry of Deeds. Once the Subsidizing Agency has granted Final Approval, the developer can apply for a building permit to begin construction
of the project. Many communities have different pre-construction procedures for large or complicated
projects, and it is common to require developers to attend a pre-construction conference with
the building inspector, representatives of the police, fire, water, and sewer departments, and other
municipal departments that have construction inspection and sign-off requirements.
