Why do I need a building permit?
Most peoples’ homes are their single largest investment. If the construction project does not comply with the codes adopted by the City, the value of a person’s investment could possibly be reduced. In addition, property insurers may not cover work done without proper permits and inspections. If a person decides to sell their home or building, the potential buyer may examine City records to make sure the proper permits and inspections were obtained.
