Violation Notices

Posted on January 12, 2014 at 9:43 PM
We are seeing an increase in code violation cases being referred to The Permit Lady. While there are always individuals and companies that try the cheap way around by doing construction projects without the benefit of permits, the current increase is by flippers.

Flippers will take a house, do some work without permits and sell the property without disclosing that there has been un-permitted work on the house. We were contacted recently by a new homeowner who had just purchased such a house.  The down payment took most of their cash and then a code enforcement officer knocked on the door. 

I have gotten to know several code enforcement officers over the years. They are decent people and are too busy to be looking for violations. Violations seem to fall into their laps. Busybody neighbors and evicted former tenants are the usually the ones who alert code enforcement officers to problems. I do know of cases in which an officer is investigating a possible violation at one property and stumble upon a neighbor's un-permitted work.

Correcting a code violation is expensive!  The typical process is: 

  • Hire an architect to draw plans of how the building is now, called As-Builts

  • Get a building permit for the un-permitted work

  • Hire a general contractor

  • Schedule an inspection by the city or county

  • Have the contractor expose the construction in question at the inspector's instruction

  • Make any corrections

  • Have a re-inspection

  • Have the contractor cover/complete the exposed construction

It can very costly to go through this process. To top it off, there is no guarantee the city will approve the permit.  My advice: Get a permit or don't do the work!

The concern authorities are supposed to be aware with such thing because they are never having the idea about the code violation they are breaking. This is supposed to be stopped by taking serious action.

Violating rules is not the best thing to do, people. If you ask me, those who violate rules need to be punished more frequently. If we cannot even enforce the rules that we have made, then what are the reason of writing them. I hope that our management takes the time to actually prioritize these incidents. I do not want to work in a lawless company, that is just too chaotic for me. I hope that we make this a priority.
