NC Offers Automatic Extension for Building Permits, Up To 3 Years

March 10, 2011, 11:03 am

I'M NOT KIDDING!!!! The General Assembly of North Carolina has done something very helpful for many of us. They have passed Senate Bill 831, "An act to extend certain government approvals affecting the development of real property within the state". Realizing that that there is "a state of economic emergency" they have extended many improvement permits for a period of up to 3 years, and there's no paperwork or cost involved. They realize that a lot of contruction projects have been put on hold and they don't wish to put the additional burden on developers to extend or renew the "myriad of other government approvals" necessary for development. If you'd like to look at it, here it is:

North Carolina Senate Bill 831

I'm not going to go into all the different types of permits that have been extended. You can read the bill if you like, or go to your building (or health) department where the permit was issued, find out if your property is affected and get it extended on paper. This legislation applies to septic permits, which is all that I can attest to, but it also says it applies to subdivision site plans, flood hazard area permits, wetlands permits, etc., etc....

I'd heard about this from a fellow Realtor but neither of us were willing to believe it until one of us got it in writing. I went to the Clay County Dept. of Environmental Health. I have 2 listings with septic permits set to expire July, 2012. The very friendly and helpful receptionist pulled the permits, checked her chart, crossed out 2012, replaced it with 2015, initialed them, made copies for me and replaced them in her files. It was that easy!!! She also made a copy of the chart for me which I'm sharing with you here. This is for septic permits because that's what we deal with the most here in Clay County. Please note these are based on the date the permit was issued, not the expiration date.

On-Site Wastewater Permits Issued
Prior to Jan. 1, 2003 After Jan.1, 2003 but before Jan. 1, 2008 On or after Jan. 1, 2008 and through Dec. 31, 2010 On or after Jan. 1, 2011


Permit Extended for 3 years Permit valid through Dec. 31, 2015, regardless of issuance date
Permit valid for five years from issuance date

I hope this has been helpful, and if I were you, I wouldn't take my word for it, I'd go to your County offices and get it changed!!
