Building permits are typically needed for construction, demolition, renovation, and additions to residential, commercial, and industrial properties. Projects involving changes to a building’s structure, plumbing, or mechanical systems often require permits
The timeline for obtaining a building permit depends on the complexity of your project and the workload of the city’s building department. Simple projects may be approved in a few weeks, while more complex projects can take several months.
The FASTRACK building Building permit service aims to issue permits for specific home renovation projects within a 5-business-day timeframe. However, it's important to note that FASTRACK applications are designed for minor interior renovations and projects without any external work. For more extensive projects like additions, garages, or new builds, the processing time is typically longer, depending on the project's individual scope.
It's often overlooked that the city of Toronto involves different departments in reviewing various aspects of an application. Different departments handle HVAC, life safety, and structural drawings. If your project involves external work, such as building an addition or a shed, the city of Toronto will also review it to ensure compliance with zoning by-laws. Obtaining a Building permit entails more than just submitting a few documents, which is why the process generally extends beyond the 5-day period.
We've encountered numerous clients facing similar issues. They acquire a property only to discover that the second-floor addition, deck, or secondary unit was not constructed in compliance with building codes and was erected unlawfully. The harsh reality is that, if you've purchased such a property, it now falls upon you to rectify the mistakes of the previous owners, despite them being the ones who implemented the changes. This is why conducting a thorough inspection before purchasing the home is crucial, ensuring that everything is in proper order.
There are several stages to obtaining a building permit and completing construction:
According to legal obligations, sellers are required to disclose any additions or unpermitted work they are aware of. However, openly addressing this situation allows for collaboration with buyers, reassuring them that necessary adjustments can be undertaken. Selling a house with minor unpermitted work is indeed a viable possibility.
We recommend reaching out to us for a free consultation to determine if you home has any ongoing permits that need to be closed.
The rules and regulations regarding building without a Building permit vary by municipality in Ontario, and it's important to check with your local municipal building department for specific guidelines.
Constructing a backyard shed, garden shed, or storage shed does not necessitate a building permit if it is smaller than 160 square feet (or 15 square meters). However, any shed exceeding 160 square feet does require a building permit. It's important to note that building permits are obligatory for accessory structures with plumbing, irrespective of their size. For additional details, you can refer to the Toronto website.
In Ontario, it is illegal to build or renovate a building without the required permits. The legislative guidelines for constructing or renovating structures in the province are provided by the Building Code Act of Ontario. Without a valid permission, it is illegal to construct, dismantle, or permit the construction or demolition of a building. If these actions are carried out without the required authorization, there may be severe repercussions, such as fines, penalties, and possible legal action.
If found guilty of a breach of the 1992 Building Code Act, such as building without a permit, the fines might reach $100,000 for many infractions and $50,000 for first offenses.
