 What is a Building Permit?

- Building permits are documents issued by a city's planning department to oversee and approve any changes to existing structures or the building of new structures. You must get a building permit if you plan on making home improvements yourself or with the help of a contractor, architect, or construction worker. Building permits ensure that you are in compliance with building codes that regulate the processes of demolition, renovation, installation, construction, augmentation, or other changes in the use of a building.

What is a Certificate of Occupancy?

- The Certificate of Occupancy is a document that provides authorization from the local government for a building to be utilized as a public edifice or as a private residence. The purpose of the certificate is to provide verification that the building is in full compliance with current building codes, and is safe for occupancy.
