Violation Notices

We are seeing an increase in code violation cases being referred to The Permit Lady. While there are always individuals and companies that try the cheap way around by doing construction projects without the benefit of permits, the current increase is by flippers.

Flippers will take a house, do some work without permits and sell the property without disclosing that there has been un-permitted work on the house. We were contacted recently by a new homeowner who had just purchased such a house.

Do You Need a Permit?

NEW construction permit requirements seem, well, obvious.  But what about simple projects?  If you're thinking about replacing your water heater or converting part of your garage into an office, ask yourself before you open your tool box: "Do I need permits?" Even small home improvements may require a building permit. Faulty installations can cause fires, flood damage and other hazards, and also force you to make costly repairs before you can sell your house.
