Non Permitted Additions and Renovations

Oh definitely.  For me, it depends on the scope of non-permitted work, and the apparent quality of the work.

If it's an addition, adding square footage, I can see it being an issue come taxes/appraisals/etc.  Electrical work, I want to make sure is done in a professional manner.  Plumbing, will it clog or leak, etc.

Hey Mike McCarthy , I’m originally from Philadelphia and went to Temple! I am a GC in NC now but only do mega multi family construction for a developer. We always pull permits and I was wondering if I bought something that is clearly an addition, if it would bite me later. Could you go more into the appraisal and the un-permitted additions? I’m not even sure if it was un-permitted, but just assumed. How could you check the records on that?
