Permits are often an overlooked component of Real Estate transactions. So-called " open" permits can cause headaches for owners who are selling or refinancing their property.
There are several reasons why a permit may remain " open."
- An owner may have obtained a permit, but never started or completed the work.
- The work was completed, but an inspection from the Building Department was never scheduled.
- An inspection was done but deficiencies were found and never corrected OR they were corrected but no re-inspection was requested.
Even owners that don’ t anticipate selling any time soon can benefit from searching for and closing any open permits. One is able to search by address, owner’ s name or folio number. Take a look by visiting our permit portal - www.citizenserve.com/bhi.
