When does my building permit expire?
Your permit will be valid provided you begin construction within 180 days, do not suspend construction for more than 180 days, and have required inspections at least every 180 days until the project is completed, or your permit will expire. If it appears that 180 days will pass without a required inspection, a request for an extension must be made in writing prior to the expiration date, stating why it is needed. The building official may grant one extension. If you do not request an extension, the cost to re-activate a permit within one year of the expiration date will be one-half the original cost of the permit. If the expiration date is older than one year, new submittal fees apply.
