Contractor Failed to Get Required Permits--What now?


I would call the permit office... I would not even think about it. Get the permits and if the city wants to fine you and not the contractor I would write to your local paper about the situation. Maybe even call some of your local news stations.

Fine is one concern, but I think as the owner volunteer to report the case, there wouldn't be a fine, normally, however, I think the main concern is really "ripping off everything and then covering them up again"... which is the real pain and $$ concern....

If it were me, it is also very difficult... as in theory, as it is already done, whether reporting the case now or reporting it the future when necessary... a tough choice...

What a nightmare. Calling the news stations is a great idea.

I really think you should call the permit office and I really think the GC should be responsible for ANY fines and should have to fix ANYTHING that the inspector wants torn out to see behind.

It would not be fair to you to be punished for the idiot mistakes of the GC.

Except the GC will probably refuse to do it...

Agreed. I would simply take any fees out of the last payment amount.....
