The term “permit expeditor” has traditionally been used to describe a person or company that has the ability to obtain building permits faster than the general public. The expeditor uses their relationships and knowledge of the town’s process to save time, money, and aggravation for their client. In return expeditors change a fee for their service. Services can include drawings, design work, filing the permit, obtaining surveys, attending variance hearings, and more. The real question is, are permit expeditors worth their fee?
The answer is, the right expeditor is an invaluable resource that will save you time, money, and help you obtain opportunities you would normally overlook. But just like any business, not all expeditors are created equal. Prior to opening Captain Permit I used almost every architect and expeditor on Long Island. Results varied but most weren’t organized, gave terrible service, and some even disappeared with my money prior to completing the job.
The right expeditor is both a resource to you prior to a purchase or listing to help avoid issues as well as the vehicle to help you smoothly resolve problems. A few key things to look for when hiring an expeditor are as follows:
1- Do they have a CRM to manage workflow? Permits are a detailed business that require organization and constant follow up. If the expeditor isn’t organized their service will be awful.
2- Do they have sufficient staff to get the job done? Most expeditors are one person operations. The result is they don’t have the resources to work on a number of files and ultimately give poor service as a result.
3- Does the expeditor subcontract all aspects of the permit process or do they perform tasks like drafting and measuring in house? It’s important that an expeditor has staff that can at least draft and design. This will decrease cost to the client and greatly speed up the process.
