Is building permit required if I plan to add a bathroom in a basement of a condominium townhouse?
Of course it will come with a small kitchen and new drywall over the entire basement.
Hi Brian, Mark & James.
Thanks for your replies, I noticed that you all specifically mentioned permit is required due to
new drains that is required.
Are you refering to the new kitchen drainage & Toilet lines?
Or are you guys refering to the new drainage outlet out of the basement? ( I have this at my basement do I still need to ask for a building permit)
You need a permit, period. Your adding living space, changing electrical, plumbing etc. Also adding a kitchen makes it a basement apartment. Which adds a lot more requirements to the permit, like egress windows, fire stops, etc.
