Legal Answers
Q. Can substantial completion be reached on new construction if there is not a fully functioning bathroom? Statue or code?
A: Substantial completion means that the owner can use the improvement for the use intended. See TCA 28-3-201. There is a lot of case law on the issue. There are exceptions, such as contract terms, change orders, etc. Consult a lawyer if you need help with your case.
