If you are planning to build a structure on a piece of investment property, if you are doing extensive or large renovations or if you are adding on to an existing structure, you have to get building permits for the job. The municipality in which the property is located is responsible for issuing the permits. In some cases, the county offices will give you the permit instead of the local municipality.
While it may be tempting to do the work on your property without getting the appropriate permits, it isn't advisable. You can get fined for failing to have and display the necessary permits and work on the property can be halted until you get the appropriate building permits. Even if you do complete the work without a valid permit, you will likely be unable to sell the property because the property may not pass inspection since the permits weren't issued and inspections on the work likely weren't done either.
If you hire a contractor, electrician, plumber or another professional to complete a job for you, ask if that person will secure the necessary permits for the job. If the professional secures the building permits, you still have to ensure that it is properly displayed.
Business.com offers information to help you learn how and when to get building permits.
