When a Permit Is Required

When You Need a Permit


Permits are required when building, remodeling or enlarging a building. Permits are also required for other improvements to your property. Projects that are cosmetic (such as painting, wallpapering, carpeting, cabinets, and trim work) do not require permits. Additionally, permits are not required when replacing fixtures on existing wiring or plumbing. 
Note: This is not an all-inclusive list. Questions concerning your specific project should be forwarded to the Customer Service Department at 972-468-4100. Also, please contact your Home Owners Association (HOA) for additional requirements from deed restrictions and covenants.
