Captain Permit is the brainchild of Long Island’s #1 fix and flip investor Charles Weinraub, AKA The Handsome Homebuyer. Prior to the conception of Captain Permit, Charles hired every major architect/expeditor on Long Island. Charles found the service to be terrible, turn around times very slow, and poor communication. Some of them even disappeared with our funds without providing the required permits or even finished plans.


The goal of Captain Permit is to provide exceptional service to the real estate community at all levels. Our clients include property owners, attorneys, commercial/residential real estate agents, investors, developers, title companies, and many more. Our referral partners trust us with their clients most valuable investment: their property. Captain Permit delivers a high quality service at a reasonable price with industry leading turnaround times.


The permit process can be very confusing and nerve wracking for our clients. We simplify the process by providing a white glove service complete with drafting, expediting, plumber/electrical referrals, survey work, and more. Captain Permit is a one stop shop for all your permit needs.


Captain Permit provides services such as legalizing previously constructed renovations, designing for proposed renovations, extensions, dormers, new construction homes, commercial projects, and more. Regardless of the type of project, our knowledgeable team has the experience and skills needed to get the job done right so you stay on schedule and on budget.
