North Carolina Building Permits
EXAMPLE: City of Raleigh, North Carolina – When is a Permit Required?
The permit process allows the city to make sure that buildings are well constructed and safe for occupants. This also helps protect your property values and the value of your neighbors property.

After you start construction, your project must be inspected. A final inspection takes place after the project is completed. Inspections make sure that the project is built according to the permit and all the applicable construction codes.

If you add square footage to your home without a permit and later want to sell your home, the project will have to be permitted and inspected before you can close on the sale. This may require the finished work to be torn out so that the rough-in and framing can be properly inspected. This can be a costly mistake that you are strongly encouraged to avoid.
