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. Licensed electricians are required in Sullivan County. Forms for the Building Department are available on the Forms Page or pick up at the Town Offices.
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.
