Work Done Without A Permit


Work done without obtaining permits and inspections is an unlawful act per Section 100.113.1 of the Washoe County Administrative Code.  Failure to obtain permits may result in the recording of a notice against the property or citing the owner with a misdemeanor, with fines up to $1000.00 per offense.  Notices recorded against your property and/or Nevada disclosure laws, requiring disclosure of unpermitted work, could impact refinancing or any future sale of your property.  Additionally, insurance companies may not cover any claims that originate from illegal work.
