What if I don’t get a permit?
Permits are required by state statutes and local ordinances. If you don’t get one when you should, the city can fine you for the violation for every day the work is not in compliance. This can be expensive for you. Projects not done according to code can affect your building’s insurability and potential sale. Prospective buyers can check the city’s building records.
