is often the most efficient and economical way of moving forward. Would you agree with that? Unfortunately, my grandfather decided to add a ramp to his entranceway without getting the proper permit to do so. He also didn't have it inspected. He expected to save time and money that way. However, now he wants to downsize and is having an awful time selling his house. It's a hot real estate market right now, and he has a buyer, but the deal is on hold until my grandfather pays a fine for building without a permit. The ramp must also pass an inspection. My aunt warned him about building that ramp without going through the proper channels, but he wanted to do it his way. A building permit might not seem important if you plan to live out your days there, but the moment someone gets hurt and claims on the home insurance, or the moment you wish to sell the home, you'll have to deal with the consequences of taking the easy way out.
