Condos and Townhouse Permitting Requirements
Condos and Townhouses are treated as Commercial Properties for purposes of permitting any work inside a unit.
There are no dollar amounts that trigger the requirement for permitting. All Condos and Townhouse plans are to be prepared by an Architect and must show Architect review, signature, and stamp. The check list for condos and townhouses is more intense. Just doing any alteration, remodeling, plumbing, electrical, or other work within a condominium or townhouse requires the owner to secure an approved building permit BEFORE work is performed.
Single Family Home Permitting Requirments
Single Family Homes have a different check list. This check list has a dollar amount for the value of work that determines if an Architect is to prepare the plan set and must show Architect review, signature, stamp to be printed on each drawing sheet. Again, the owner is to secure an approved building permit BEFORE work is performed.
