When in the trenches of the actual rehab, you will encounter five different but important stages.
Below are some tips on securing permits for your house rehab in Pleasant Hill, without the costs or stress you may expect. Keep reading for more great tips!
Demolition and trash cleanup: Removal of damaged items (walls, floors, toilets, piping, etc). Outside cleanup would include dead trees, bushes, fences, decks, etc.
Foundation and framing issues: This stage takes care of the skeleton of the house.
HVAC, plumbing, electricity: Building inspectors come in after this stage to check if installations are done right.
Insulation: Remember to start insulation only after the electricity and plumbing inspection is done. Depending on where you are, another inspection is due to see if you have properly obscured any wiring, piping, and ducting.
Trimming and painting: trim work followed by painting is part of the last stages in your rehabbing. You will now begin to see your vision come to life.
Walk-Through Inspection & Final Payment
No matter how meticulous you are, or how much you trust your contractor, there will be a few things that go unnoticed. To provide for this, it’s necessary to conduct a second walkthrough of the property, after all, initial inspections have been completed.
Make sure the contractor delivered everything listed on the contracts. Also, don’t forget that final inspections need to be done to finalize your building permits. (Budget time for this.)
When you find the project satisfactory, draw up the Final Waiver of Lien to be signed by the contractor. Promptly deliver the final payment for a job well done (and lay the groundwork for a future working relationship).
