To Build or Renovate

If you intend to build a new home or renovate an older home, you must receive a building permit from the Municipality before you begin work. All construction within the Municipality must be in compliance with the various building codes in effect for the zone where you intend to build.

If your application is in compliance with the building codes, the Building Inspector can process your application immediately and issue you a building permit. When the home is finished, it is inspected to ensure that all the construction corresponds to the building codes and that the structure is secured against fire. If everything is in order, you will receive a certificate to that effect. Once you have this certificate, your lending institution may then arrange for long-term financing of the building.
