Open Permits

Open permits are permits that have expired which have not passed the required inspections. The first step in the process is to renew the permit. Try contacting the original contractor. If the company is no longer in business, or unresponsive, the home owner may be able to renew the permit in their name depending the type of permit. In many situations they may need to hire a contractor to renew the permit. There are municipal fees involved and if a new contractor is hired there will be fees for their services

The next step is to get the permit closed. Inspection may have to be done, and in some cases those inspections may involve work that is concealed. Destructive testing may be required and engineers hired to certify the work was done to code. There are even situations were the work performed under the permit may have to be removed. Depending on the contractors costs, testing and engineers fees it may be more cost effective to remove the work that was performed under the permit.
