What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Washington
We built a garage on our property about 8 years ago and we did not get a building permit because we were told we did not need one for a garage. Now we found out that we were supposed to have gotten a building permit. Is there a statute of limitations on building permits in the state of Washington? How long do they have to come back and charge us for this building permit? Can they charge us fines for not getting the permit? Or if they do not find that our structure is ok, can they make us tear it down?What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
