Filled in his garage? OK, what's that mean? As far as trouble, your local building dept would be the only ones that know for sure, but a call to ask might be asking for trouble too. Explain "filled in his basement" a little more and we'll try to help a little more.

OK, so he closed in a carport to part of the house, gotcha . I would think the building dept. would frown on doing this without a permit. What would happen if he was reported depends on the mood of the inspector at the time he checks it out. I've heard anything from: "Just pay for the permit, plus a small fine for not gettting it before you did this." ....to...."Tear it down to the first inspection point, get the permits you should have gotten before, pay a fine, and I'm being nice, I could make you tear it all the way down"

Down south, in the States, this would eventually catch up with you when the home was sold.
