How long is a permit valid?
A permit remains valid for as long as the work is proceeding. If the work is halted or abandoned for a period of at least six months, the permit may be suspended. Extensions may be granted for cause by the building commissioner. Letters are sent to permit holders advising them that the permit is about to be suspended and requesting a progress report when no inspections have been scheduled for 6-12 months. If the permit is suspended, you may be required to re-apply and/or pay additional fees to re-activate the permit.
