How is every body? Does any one live in Pasco County Fl? And know how to fight the Code inforcement people. My mom is in her 70's and disable. We have a Bully who lives in the neighborhood and has turn people in . She added onto her mobile home back in the 80's and did not get permits. Found in the permit section where it says.... ARTICLE III. BUILDING PERMITS Sec. 18-36. Permit required. (a) Permits are required as stated in this code and the Florida Building Code. The following activities require a building permit unless exempted in writing by the Building Official: erection, construction, alteration or repair of a building, structure, electrical, gas, mechanical or plumbing system. Permits are required for sheds and similar outbuildings. (b) Permits are not required for fences without concrete footers, soffit and fascia, painting, minor drywall repairs, kitchen remodels that do not involve electrical or plumbing, mailboxes, and the work identified as exempt from permits in section 105.2 of the Florida Building Code. (c) Failure to obtain a required permit prior to commencing, or allowing commencement of, any of these activities is a violation of this code. Engaging in, contracting for, encouraging, assisting, procuring, or performing work requiring a building permit without such permit is a violation of this code. Failing to obtain a building permit for work previously undertaken without a permit, when such permit was required is a violation of this code. This section also applies to persons who purchase or otherwise obtain land or a structure upon which there is an existing violation where work was performed without the required permit and who, after a warning, fail to obtain an "after-the-fact" permit to cure the violation or to demolish or restore the structure to its original condition in order to cure the violation. "After-the-fact" permits are not required for: (1) Sheds under 250 square feet and aboveground pools, when these structures were erected prior to January 1, 1995; and (2) Any structure, work or condition for which a permit would have been required, when such structure, work or condition was completed prior to January 1, 1985.
