An open permit is one that has been obtained but never closed out. Closing an open permit can be as simple as one inspection or require renovation work and multiple inspections. Every case is unique.
It is required for homeowners to have permits in order to build or add a deck to their home in just about any form. It is essential to get this permit in order to keep the county from fining you or forcing you to destroy the deck.
It is extremely common for renovations of all kinds to have been completed years ago without the required permits. Missing permits can be a major issue when trying to sell a house. Unfortunately, whoever owns the home at the time is responsible for legalizing the renovation or structure, even the work was done years ago. The process needed for most legalizations includes a new survey, architectural plans, plumbing permit, electrical underwriters certificate, architect’s letter, and more. Captain Permit offers comprehensive solutions to legalize any renovation or structure with no existing permit.
Electric and plumbing permits are obtained once a building permit has been issued. This goes for both proposed work as well as maintenance. Captain Permit has an exceptional team of plumbers and electricians we can refer to our clients regardless of their situation or reason.
An interior alteration permit covers any renovation that is proposed inside a house or was previously completed without a permit and now needs to be legalized. Interior alterations consist of renovations such as sheetrock replacement, trim, doors, kitchen cabinets, finishing basements, and much more.

Variances are often required for renovations as simple as decks, pools, sheds, garage conversions, and more. During the variance process Captain Permit can appear in front of the Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) on our clients behalf to ask for “relief.” Once granted, we will be allowed to legalize the existing renovation or proceed with building the proposed improvement.
Permits are necessary for just about every structure on a home, even the existing ones. This goes for Long Beach, NY as well as all of Nassau County. This includes any project that involves construction, carpentry, demolition, electrical work, plumbing, paving, and the installation of an HVAC unit.
Unfortunately, the process of applying for a permit can be timely and confusing. It can also be costly especially if you have to apply and reapply because you did not fill out the permit correctly. For example, it costs $300 for Nassau County to review your plans and specifications for each project. As a result, many homeowner building permits are sought after with the help of a professional to save both time and money.
