City Of Phoenix Permits For Residential Construction And Demolition

City Of Phoenix Permits For Residential Construction And Demolition

We have all seen it before (or have even done it ourselves): an additional room added to the pre-existing home, a second/third bathroom,the fence made taller, the list goes on. However, did you know that best practice is having a permit to make said changes? Did you know you even need a permit to demolish part/all of your home???

That’s right.

You now may be wondering why that is even so, and if it is just another way for the city to get more money. In reality permits are a good thing. By requiring permits, it allows for some order and standard to be established, based off the Phoenix Building Construction Code.

Also, getting a permit before making changes to the home is a specifically great idea IF you are planning to eventually sell your home. This way you can ensure that a higher price point can be strived toward, given you have the right documentation to prove additional square footage of the addition made, etc.

Even if you are not thinking of selling your home, getting a permit is a recommended. In the event you make an addition or demolish part of your home without a permit, the city may require you to pay a fine in addition to restoring the property to its original condition. No one like extra and unnecessary work.
