How long is my permit good for?

Your building permit is good for 6 months (180 days). Work must commence within that period and continue without interruption, however it may, with permission of the Building Department, be renewed for up to 6 months provided that the request to extend the permit is made prior to original exipration date. After that, if you have not started or continuously worked on the project, your permit will be considered abandoned and you will have to reapply.
