Need help with permit/city got a Stop Work Order.


I'm not trying to fight you, you have a valid point, but, how are you going to prove it was like that when you purchased it?

The onus will be on you to prove that you are innocent here. It can be done, but if the inspector is pissed he'll make life miserable, and this guy sounds pissed since he won't let you put the shingles on and we have had this horrible rain going on lately.

When he shows up, bring him into the garage, have a ladder ready for him to look up into the newly framed area, have the ladder up properly, tied off, extended 3' higher then the area it is leaning on...lade lade da, you get the picture.

Don't bring him through the house to get access to the garage, show him what he is there for and that's it. Be polite, if he questions something make notes, offer to repair it and tell him you will reschedule for the following day or two days later, whatever it takes.

It is not in the garage. He added, basically, a big ass cricket-slash-false dormer. To the left of the garage, on the main house.

Cut a big hole in the gable on that thing and hopefully he is good to climb on the roof to see all the framing and it's many many Simpson hardware attachements you put in....right

I can easily pull off the roofing paper and a plywood to show him the actual structure. I sent him an email and called him today with no response. I will have to try him back tommorow.

LOL, no simpson hardware just nails, screws and staples. It serves no actual functional purpose

They don't have to prove anything. They have original photos of the original structure when it got the original C of O. And copies of any permits issued since.

When you purchase a property, it's up to you to find out if the house contains any nonpermitted work or renovation. Who did it at this point is irrelevant. It's who owns it that's responsible now.

Sorry took so long to reply, the reson I asked what you were doing with the home is Here in FL & SC a home onwer can pull permits for his onw home but not a filp or rentals so you maybe getting youself in trouble right now Also the fine here for work with out a permit starts at 3X noraml fee + any other fines they feel like adding. I think you should check some rules before you do any more.

It is currently considered owner occupied, shouldn't be an issue. They let me get the permit under Owner-Builder.

Here it would be an issue, if you pull a owner permit you can do anything else, such as rent or sell for 1 years and in SC it's 2years :0.
