When an owner has complied with the requirements listed in subsections (1) to (5) of section 14, the Building Inspector must remove the “Do not occupy” notice posted under section 18.

Neither the issuance of a building permit nor a removal of a “Do not occupy” order posted under section 18 of this bylaw nor the acceptance or review of plans, drawings or specifica- tions or supporting documents nor any inspections made by or on behalf of the Town consti- tute in any way a representation, warranty, assurance or statement that the Building Code, this bylaw or any other applicable codes standards or enactments have been complied with.
