What Happens If I Do Work Without A Permit?

Work without a permit could result in a stop-work order, an investigative fee, and for contractors, an investigation from the State. 

Savvy home buyers and realtors want to see proof of permitted work, so also keep in mind that if un-permitted work is occurring at your home, it could be an issue if you choose to sell.
