How can I learn about building permits?
Property owners who wish to demolish, alter, build an addition or erect a new structure are responsible for obtaining a building permit from DOB to ensure that the resulting house, loft, apartment, office, garage, house of worship or any other residential, commercial or industrial structure complies with Building Code and zoning requirements. Application/permit fees are based on the size of the structure for new buildings/enlargements or, for alteration or demolition work, the estimated cost of the project. The minimum filing fee is $100.
