BUILDING PERMIT

What is Building permit?

A building permit is an official approval issued by the local government agency that allows you or your contractor to proceed with either construction or remodeling project on the desired property. Its purpose is to ensure that the project plans comply with local standards for land use, zoning, and construction. The specific issues that the building permit process may address could be

  • Structural integrity of the framing work
  • Zoning
  • Sanitation
  • Water and sewer lines
  • Fire protection
  • Electrical service.

You can use Building permit for:

  • building a porch
  • building a shed
  • building a garage
  • building a house
  • building a patio
  • building a ADU, etc.

Why would you need a building permit?

Any major change done to your home’s structure or any changes done to its mechanical systems will in most cases require you to apply for a building permit. If you were to start making changes around the house/property without the permit, although it is possible, it is not recommended. Some of the issues can be caused by inspection if you were to sell the house, they could easily uncover changes made around the house that were done without proper permits. In case of structural collapse, fire or any type of severe damage done to the house/property, and it is uncovered that the root of the problem was the structure that was not permitted, it’s possible your homeowner’s damage and liability policy may decline to cover the damage.
