Do I need to apply for a permit in person?
Applications are accepted by mail; however, all licensed contractors and builders need to provide photo identification (driver's license and current Residential Builder's Board State license) with each application. In any instance, the applications must be signed and accompanied by a check for the required application fees. All Building permits require a homeowner’s signature or a copy of the contract.
