Building permit

Building and home improvements projects frequently require permits. Building codes are in place to make sure that homeowners are working with long-lasting, safe and secure building improvements for their homes. The building permit is a key document that must be obtained when constructing or renovating a house. This ensures the quality of the work you do. It must be requested before commencing construction.

Does my renovation project requires a building permit?

This is one of the most frequently asked question which every property owner asks. Renovations are a big deal and they are bound to cause some noise and chaos in the short run. If you or your client is planning on doing some renovations, you might need a building permit. Building permits are required if the proposed project will entail any change in the structural integrity of the building or if it requires any kind of occupancy licensing.
