    Open Permits

    Captain Permit

    An open permit is one that has been obtained but never closed out. Closing an open permit can be simple as one inspection or require renovation work and multiple inspections. Open permits are vital because they ensure that all necessary renovations are properly inspected and approved by local authorities. Without an open permit, contractors have no incentive to complete jobs according to code regulations since there is no oversight from local authorities.

    Deck Permit

    As a deck can enhance the look of any property and increase property value but, it can only be problematic if constructed legally. It is a requirement for homeowners to have a permit in order to add or build a deck to their home in just about any form. It’s mandatory to possess a deck permit to avoid hefty fines from the county. Also, the county could make you tear down the existing structure if already constructed without a permit.

    No Existing Permit

    Renovations and add-ons that took place years ago generally were constructed without permits. This can be a major issue for those trying to sell their homes.
