What are permits and why do I need one?
A permit is a document that, upon final inspection approval, will provide assurance to the property owner and occupants that construction activity has been performed safely and in accordance with State and local codes. Information found on the permit includes: the property owner’s name and address, the names and addresses of the contractor and designer, the scope of work to be performed, and a record of inspection activity from the start of construction through the approved final inspection. The permit document provides a valuable history of a building which can assist when future additions or alterations are planned. Lastly, as real estate transactions require disclosure of all improvements, the permit document will be invaluable when you sell or refinance your home.
