Required Permits For Renovations
In most cases a building permit will be required to start and complete any project. For those projects that do require a permit the first draw will not be approved without permits.
Notice of Commencement
In addition when a project does require a permit the contractor must also file a notice of commencement and provide a copy to the borrower. Most county and/or municipalities in Florida will not provide the necessary inspections for a project that requires a permit but has not had a Notice of Commencement filed with the county tax assessor’s office.
