Additional Comments & Information
The punch list, is a document showing work that still needs to be done on a construction project.
Your plat map is often given to you from your title company. It will show you how the tract of land is divided into home lots, the size of your property’s land, building layout, streets, rights of way, flood zones, and boundaries.
Inspections are a way to control the quality of a finished construction work. The building inspector is to verify compliance with the minimum safety standards set forth in the adopted codes. At the inspection, the Building Inspector will review all work done, compare it to the approved plans and or building code (as applicable) for compliance, and issue an inspection report.
Close Out All Issued Permits
Any time you are building or remodeling commercial or residential property a building permit must be obtained. This gives you the legal permission from your city/county to begin construction work or demolition. These permits must be obtained before your project can begin. At the end of your project, you must close your permits out.
Permits sometimes remain open after construction is finished because a final inspection was never obtained, or the contractor did not complete the proper paper work before closing the job. Permits that are not closed can cause serious issues for sellers and buyers as the permit can potentially act as a lien on the site and are a liability to the property seller. When buying a new home always check to see if there are any open permits.
