your home to renovations, here are the most common building permissions, restrictions, covenants, and laws you should know about.
In residential construction, it's important for homeowners to understand the basic rules, regulations, and restrictions. Whether you're planning to do the work yourself or hire professionals, failing to obtain the right permits and approvals can make or break a remodeling or a rebuilding
project. It could stop work completely in its tracks or delay it. And that means lost time and money.
Whether you're renovating an existing home or rebuilding
a new house on the same lot, here are some terms you should know.
If you hire pros for construction work and rebuilding
, be sure they are licensed and insured and that they obtain the proper permits. Along with putting your family's and neighbors' safety at risk, doing work without the necessary permits could result in being subject to stop-work orders, fines, or penalties. And if an accident happens on site, not having an insured contractor or the proper building permits could open you up to a massive lawsuit and even negligent criminal charges.
