Why do we need a building permit?
Building permits are required by local governments to ensure that construction projects are safe and meet certain standards. Building codes and regulations are put in place to protect the health and safety of the public, and a building permit serves as a way to ensure that these standards are being met.
Obtaining a building permit is typically a necessary step in the construction process, and it is typically required for any new construction, major renovations, or other changes to a building’s structure or function. Building permits ensure that plans and specifications for a construction project have been reviewed and approved by the appropriate authorities, and they provide a way for local governments to monitor the progress of a construction project and ensure that it is being built according to code.
In addition to ensuring safety and compliance, building permits can also be helpful for homeowners and contractors in other ways. For example, having a building permit on file can help protect homeowners from legal liability in the event that something goes wrong with the construction project. Building permits can also help to protect the value of a property, as they can serve as evidence that a construction project was completed according to code.

What is an "After-the Fact" Permit?
After-the-fact permits are usually issued as a way to bring a property into compliance with local building codes and regulations. They may be issued in situations where the property owner was unaware that a permit was required, or where the work was carried out without the knowledge or consent of the property owner.
In order to obtain an after-the-fact permit, the property owner typically needs to provide evidence that the work was completed in accordance with local building codes and regulations, and may be required to pay a fee. In some cases, the property owner may also be required to make modifications to the work in order to bring it into compliance with local codes.
