How long is a permit valid?

A permit is valid for 6 months as long as work is receiving inspections. A permit shall become null and void if the proposed work is not started within 6 months of issuance or when work is suspended or abandoned for a period of 6 months after work is started. Extensions can be requested and may be granted upon the authorization of the building official, otherwise they will be required to be re-permitted with fees due.
