Homeowner's Toolkit

Permits

Depending on the jurisdiction and scope of the project a permit may take 6 weeks, or in some cases longer. On very small projects, DC, Fairfax and Montgomery county have a walk thru process that can take as little as 1 day up to I week. Usually the contractor files the drawings with the permit office. In some cases where it is possible to walk the drawings thru,I advise the home owner that they should submit for permits. There are times when the will save time.
