What does a building permit cost?
Most of the costs associated with a building permit are based on a building’s square footage and the type and amount of installations or improvements being made. A building’s value is not computed into the cost of the permit. Individuals or firms securing a building permit pay all standard permit and inspection fees at the time the permit is issued. The larger a building is or the more electrical, plumbing or mechanical fixtures and appliances it contains, the higher the permit cost will be.
