Permits are required for all new construction as well as specific alterations to existing structures, which include structural, plumbing, mechanical, gas and electrical changes. The true value of the permit lies in the accompanying expert inspection of your project.
The person performing the work, whether an owner or a contractor is responsible for obtaining all necessary permits. Once the permit is issued, you can begin work. The permit must be on site and available to the inspector. If your permit has accompanying plans, then the plans must be available on the job site as well.
The building permit expires if work is not started within 180 days from its issuance. Once you have begun, your permit expires if work is suspended or abandoned for 180 days and more. If you cannot work within a 180 day period but do not wish to abandon the project, you need to submit a written request to extend your permit.
The following types of projects require permits:
Any structure not specifically exempt by the Florida Building Code.Any structure for residential and commercial use, regardless of size.Remodeling, except painting and papering.Placement of a manufactured or modular home, or a relocated structure.When a building permit is not required but plumbing and mechanical work is being performed, separate plumbing and mechanical permits are required.When electrical work is being performed, separate electrical permits are required.
