Consumer Guide: Permitting for Single Family Residence
Building Construction > Consumer Guide: Permitting for a Single Family Residence

You're ready to build your dream home but where do you start? Building a new home begins long before the foundation is poured. This guide cannot help you pick out your cabinets or choose between tile or carpeting. But, it can help make the permitting process go smoothly for you by preparing you with the information you need:

  • Know what is involved with permitting a single family residence in Charlotte County.
  • Determine what documentation is needed for permitting a single family residence.
  • Anticipate fees that are encountered during the permitting process and when those fees will be due.
  • Work with licensed contractors.
  • Have a successful inspection.

Links to valuable resources have been included under the "Related Links" section of this page to help you get to the right information.
