Why do you need a permit?
The California Building Codes have been adopted by your Board of Supervisors as required to protect health, general welfare, and your investment in your property. The evidence of a building permit is often necessary to obtain financing from lending agencies. Fire and liability insurance damages may not be paid in some cases where permits were not obtained and improvements do not meet regulations.
