Building Permits Impact Home Sales

As design professionals, building permits are a standard requirement for our projects.

However, we sometimes have clients that question the utility and value of the process.  Getting a permit is worthwhile.  Consider the following reasons:
  • A licensed and bonded contractor will get a permit if required by the work.
  • Using a licensed and bonded contractor protects you through the Nevada State Contractors Board.
  • A permit review helps to ensure that the construction meets current building codes*.
  • Real estate transactions discover un-permitted work, resulting in requirements for retroactive permits prior to appraisal and sale.  Pay now or pay later.

* Your design professional is also responsible to design to current building codes.
