Is a job considered legally complete if a contractor does not get the final inspection approved
Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to answer your question.

I am sorry to hear about this situation.

Does the written contract states that the work / job is subject to final inspection approval?

What kind of final inspection are you referring to? By customer or by a code inspector?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

city building inspector. If I pay before the final inspection how do I know it will pass and not havetto have more work to be done

Thank you for your follow up.

Does your written contract with the General Contractor state that the final payment for the job is subject to final inspection by the code inspector?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

no

Thank you for your follow up.

In order for the General Contractor to declare that the job is completed, the job would have to pass all final inspections from the code inspector and also any "punch out" lists.

I wish you the best of luck!
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

can you give me code or ordinance number that applies

Thank you for your follow up.

You can find rules governing contractor's duties on page 102 at the link below:
