Permits and Inspections
Does anybody know which government office on STX has information about what permits/insepctions are required when making home improvements, excluding "earth change"? If it is government house, any additional specifcs would be appreciated.
In addition, does anybody have expierence where they had difficulty selling a home because prior occupants made changes without the proper permitting? Insurnace claims regected because of permitting/inspection issues?

I did an insurance inspection after Omar where part of a porch roof was tornoff by the wind. I did the usual pictures and had to note the lack of fasteners, a severe lack. The ins co wouldn't pay to replace it. I did a home inspection out east and did the sketch and took the pics and it was discovered that an addition was built w/o permits. The owner went back and got permits and that solved the problem but delayed the sale.
