@boomerpapa Not recommending this at all but we have a friend in the rainforest who built a little house with her two daughters completely off grid and nary a permit.

Do you know if this would create a problem if/when they go to sell the property?  I some states this would get flagged and become a huge issue when selling a property.

It will become a big problem if it's ever discovered by our reported to DPNR.

There's a partially completed concrete building behind the Domino Club (aka, the drinking pig) on Mahogany Road.

My understanding is that construction was ordered halted by DPNR years ago because it wasn't permitted and inspected.

It's illegal to live in a house without a certificate of occupancy (CO), and DPNR could get a Court order to make someone leave the house until the CO is issued (after missing inspections are completed).

I'm not an attorney, but my understanding is that confirming that a CO has been issued (and that taxes have been paid) are part of the clearance process at the Lieutenant Governor's office before a transfer can occur.

I guess, in theory, someone could build and live in an unpermitted house as long as they never sell it (and they aren't discovered it reported to DPNR), but it seems to me it would be more stressful and expensive than just dealing with the bureaucracy and getting it permitted...
