Do you need permit for converting carport
« on: January 17, 2003, 12:30:44 pm »
Does anyone know, if you convert the carport to enclosed two cars garage, weather you need a CO (certificate of occupancy) for it or not. The house is in Georgetown and was built in 1971. When you do title search, shouldn’t any changes that was done legally show up in the search.
Thank you,
Michael

Michael,
I'm not sure on the first question.  It would probably be best to call the permitting office and find out what the regs are.  I think there are certain requirements based on dollar amount and others based on tasks, but I'm not positive.  I've avoided getting permits thus far.

To answer the second question, typically, permitted modifications like a garage conversion will show up in the tax records.  I'm not sure why someone would search title for a renovation?

hope that helps...
