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.

Need more info? Stop by the Building Department on the 2nd floor of the Mayor Joseph J. Gardner Government Center, drop us a line at BuildingDepartment@bayharborislands-fl.gov, or give us a call 305-993-1786.
