Most construction work requires a permit from the Building Department and permits are required to be posted on site. Sometimes Planning Department approval is also required. Begin by contacting the Building Department with the address of the property in question to find out if any permits have been issued for the address. The Building Department can contact the property owner and/or inspect from public places or, with permission, from adjacent sites to determine if work is taking place that requires a permit and stop work at the site, if appropriate.
