You may be surprised which small home projects actually require a permit. You probably think if it is a minor change and doesn’t affect anyone else, why would I need a permit? The most important reason is that failing to get a permit could reduce the value of your home. Information about updates and maintenance help your home value stay current with taxes and insurance. If you ever sell your home, that information will be necessary for real estate purposes and keeping accurate square footage and market value records.
Also, remodeling permits will make sure your property is up to date with the latest health and safety standards. If unpermitted work is done on your home, it could be a concern for safety reasons and depreciate your home’s value. You may even be fined if an appraiser determines that the work needs to be redone with the proper permits.
It is essential to know the types of work that require permits like driveway replacements, fences, generators, irrigation systems, storage buildings, and swimming pools. Your application should have a site plan and a proposal for the work done. Plans need to be drawn to scale and show the dimensions and shape of your property. Plus, the size and location of the buildings are important. Think ahead and plan to have an inspector review the permit application, and with a quality application, an inspector can review your plan in about a week.
