The Building Inspector issues building permits for any construction which is structural in nature in the Town of Tusten. Examples would be decks, pools, screen porches, sheds, additions, alterations, re-roofing, generators, new homes, septic and wells, etc. Always check to see if a permit is required before performing any work. Licenses electricians are required in Sullivan County. Forms for the Building Department are available on the Forms Page.
Construction without a necessary permit is a violation on your property. Fees are based upon cost of construction and type of permit.
Upon receipt of a building permit, during the building process, inspections are required, and a final inspection is necessary by the Building Inspector, before a Certificate of Occupancy can be issued. Some structures were built prior to the requirement of Certificates of Occupancy and are handled case by case.
Use of any structure without a Certificate of Occupancy constitutes a violation on your property. If you try to sell your property, or re-finance, the bank or financial institution will require that you provide them with a copy of your Certificate of Occupancy.
