EXPIRED PERMITS

What is an Expired Permit?
The initial life of a permit is good for 180 days, but it will expire if no activity or approved inspections have happened for more than 6 months.

Why is this important?  
Any open/expired permits may cause delays with future closings and sale of property, inspections, title searches, etc.
