Additional Bedroom sfh

4 Replies

Hey BP!

I invest in West palm beach fl.

I have a question: would i need to pull a permit if am adding a bedroom by simply thowing up a wall inside the house(m not messing with any structure)?

Also, can go to register the extra bedroom at any time after work is completed?

Thanks, in advance!!

@Jean Joseph

Adding a wall even if not structural requires additional receptacles most likely.  Most jurisdictions require a permit.  Adding a bedroom impacts the tax accessor as well.  Check with your local building department.

Good Luck.

Not sure what you mean.  If the bedroom was added before you bought it then I would ask for proof it was permitted so you don’t have to deal with this in case it comes up.  That is part of your due diligence.

@Kenneth Garrett sorry no. I added the bedroom with a wall. I did not mess with structure/square feet of the property.

As you said, im going to call the zoning building and ask how can i register the additional bedroom(not going to share the property address)

Thanks Kenneth
