Why Permits Are Necessary

The Reason for Permits

A permit is a legal document that gives you permission to start construction of a building project at an agreed upon location, within a set time frame, in accordance with city-approved drawings and specifications. The building permit ensures that plans for construction, specifications, and proposed materials have been reviewed by a licensed plans reviewer meeting the most current Florida Building Code requirements, and all other applicable codes and ordinances, thereby protecting the welfare of life and property.
