Building Permits are Required
Building Permits are Required

Most all construction related activity requires a permit from the Town Building Department.  Alterations, remodeling, renovations, additions and other improvements, including any electrical, plumbing, mechanical (heating or air-conditioning) work requires a permit.  Obtaining a building permit not only ensures that a record of the work performed is created and maintained at Town Hall, but allows the Town to inspect and confirm that any work done on your property is properly completed and done in compliance with applicable code.

The Florida Building Code, which governs, prohibits the use of unlicensed contractors.  Allowing unlicensed contractors and non-permitted construction on your property may leave you exposed to unprofessional, non-compliant work and unsafe conditions, and may also result in penalties for the property owner, including double fees for permits and additional pre-permit inspection fees that will be borne by the property owner.

Let us help you in keeping your property in a safe and compliant manner.  If you have any questions or are unsure if a permit is required do not hesitate to contact the Town Building Department at (305) 861-4863.
