Work Without a Permit Violation

If work requires a permit, it is in your best interest to obtain one. You may be fined if you perform work without a permit (WWP).

Civil Penalties

One or two family dwellings get penalized at a lower rate than buildings with more units. However, the penalty is still much higher than it would have been to have gotten the permit in the first place.

Type of Building Penalty Rate


 1-2 Family Dwellings

6x the original permit cost

$600 – $10,000
Non 1-2 Family Dwellings 21x the original permit cost  $6,000 – $15,000
