Atlanta Building Permit Change Approved

July 7, 2017

The Atlanta City Council approved an amendment to its building code allowing general repair work of $10,000 and below to be done without having to obtain a building permit. This will apply to existing single-family and multi-family homes, duplexes and non-residential buildings.

This is another measure the Department of City Planning said, “…removes some of the regulatory burden on those seeking to perform repairs or building upgrades.”

Also, by raising the bar from $2,500 to $10,000, reduces the number of permits per year and allows the department to concentrate on more substantial projects around the city.
