Question DetailsAsked on 6/27/2012

We received a code violation complaint during an un-permitted bathroom remodeling. What can we do to minimize the loss?

We were remodeling our bathroom, new tiles, tub etc. We received a bulding code violation complain, possibly from a neighbor due to the noise and now an inspector wants to conduct an investigation and needs access to the property. What can we do now?

Your best bet is to be compliant with the inspector, draw up a set of blue prints, with a plot plan and bathroom location, and new bathroom submit them to the city or county for review. Upon approval you can pull permits and call in for proper inspections. If your not very far into your remodel just stop and wait for everything to fall into place. If your almosts done chances are you might have to remove some tile on the wall and expose the plumbing for review. Pending on the inspector and the % of the completion everything will be ok.
If you hired a contractor to do the remodel he should have to pay for any losses. Any legitimate contractor knows you need a permit for almost everything, according to city and county inspectors.
Next time hire a professional.
Best of luck
