WHY SECURE YOUR BUILDING PERMIT BEFORE BUILDING CONSTRUCTION?
Applying for a building permit is important because it ensures that the proposed construction project meets local building codes and regulations, ensuring the safety and structural integrity of the building. It also ensures that the building complies with the area’s zoning laws and can help ensure that the building is accessible to people with disabilities. Additionally, it allows local building officials to review and approve plans and inspect the construction process to ensure compliance with the approved plans and codes. Without a building permit, a building is deemed illegal and will be subject to fines, penalties or even demolition. It also provides legal proof of the building’s compliance with the regulations, which can be useful in case of any disputes or insurance claims.
