What Can You Do About Remodeling, Additions or Other Work Done Without Permits and Finals in San Jose?

Front door peep holeOften homes in and near San Jose have some sort of non-permitted modification done.  Sometimes it’s a roof, a water heater replacement or even electrical changes (or improvements) done without the necessary permits and finals.

If you buy a home or have one with this situation and live in the city of San Jose, there’s a great deal of information available online via the city’s website.  Today I was looking on the site for a client who wants to do an addition (and wondered what the limits and guidelines are for that) when I found this page. It’s a gem!
