Permit Records & Research
Purchasing a real property is a big investment. Therefore it is highly recommended to check that all aspects of your new home are properly permitted. By researching the existing permit records of your potential home, you can protect the value of your investment and avoid a dispute that may arise down the road. If your house consists of a new construction or addition that does not have a permit or comply with the City’s building codes, you may be cited by City’s Code Enforcement, and also the value of your investment could be reduced. Property insurers may not cover work done without permits and inspections. If you decide to sell a home or building that has been modified without a permit, you may be required to tear down the addition, leave it unoccupied or perform costly repairs. A property owner who can show that code requirements were strictly and consistently met, as demonstrated by a code official’s carefully maintained records, has a strong ally if something happens to trigger a potentially destructive lawsuit. By obtaining permit records and following code guidelines, you can ensure that your completed project has met set standards of safety and will be less likely to cause injury to you, your family, your friends and future owners.
