Charlie, when you say new, do you mean new construction, never lived in before?

If you willingly signed a waiver on that condition of your purchase contract, then you have no legal recourse. If the seller was required to get the Certificate of Occupancy prior to close, and the transaction closed before the Certificate was issued (and I assume they cant get it now, based on the wording of your post), then, yes, you should seek the counsel of an attorney, or speak to your agents manager for further advice. This all comes down to whether you agreed to waive the sellers responsibility and you took it on, or whether it was the sellers responsibility and they did not do it.
