Safe Home Buying

Buying a property? Check for work that has been done without a permit. Bringing these items up to code can be costly, but the worry of navigating that system can be offset by using a permitting service like Your Permit Solution.

The following common alterations or improvements require a building permit:

  • Making a structural addition

  • Installing a new roof

  • Blocking off or adding a door or window

  • Adding or relocating electrical outlets

  • Adding or relocating plumbing fixtures (sinks, toilets, showers)

  • Converting a garage or storage area to an air conditioned occupied space

  • Installing or replacing an air conditioning system
