Does your project need a permit?

Permit requirements depend on the scope of your project or location related constraints. Please visit the City website at http://ci.sultan.wa.us/ for information regarding permissible uses for all zoning districts, setbacks, land use and building permit requirements and applications.

  • Overview. Whether you are a homeowner, small business owner or contractor, the process to obtain a permit will depend on the scope of your project.
  • Types of Permits/Approvals. Find out what type of permit/approval you need or whether you even need a permit/approval for your project.
  • Relevant Documents. Useful information that can help clarify building regulations, assist you with design specifications, and provide helpful building tips and more.

 

Why do you need permits?

  • It’s the law. State building codes require that permits be obtained for certain types of work. Permits provide a legal record of work performed.
  • Permits protect you, your family and your investment (they are designed to help ensure that licensed contractors do the work when required.)
  • Inspections ensure that work is done safely and that it meets the minimum code requirements.
  • Minor problems that could lead to costly repairs, liability and life/safety issues can be detected during permit inspections and brought to your attention before the situation worsens.
  • When selling property, the buyer, realtor and/or lender may require that unpermitted work be corrected, properly permitted and inspected before closing.
  • Lack of permits and inspection approvals may void homeowner’s insurance.
