There are several factors which you should think about before building without permit. Consequences can come into play when you decide to sell your home or refinance your home. You may see penalties when an inspector drives by your home and sees construction going on. Or you may feel repercussions when a home catastrophe happens and the damage was caused by faulty work. Unfortunately, all of these events can cost you money, whether in fines, lost profits or out of pocket expenses following a claim. But, it’s never too late to help your situation.
