A new owner of occupancy does require an inspection. There is a $100 Certificate of Compliance fee for a new owner inspection. During a new owner inspection, the inspector will verify that the occupancy is in compliance with all fire and life safety standards.
If the occupancy is only changing names, no new inspection is needed. However, if the name change involves a change in ownership and/or a change in occupancy type, an inspection will be required. In the event of only a name change, the Williamson County Fire Marshal's Office shall be notified for maintenance of records.
