Permit Cancellation or Refund
The following sections apply to the revocation, abandonment, discontinuance, or cancellation of a permit. Any permit holders requesting to cancel a permit and/or obtain a refund must do so in writing to the Code Official as required by the Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code.
The cost of inspections performed and any penalties assessed by Code Official will be deducted from the original permit fee. The refund shall not be required to exceed an amount which correlates to work not completed and will be mailed to the permit holder in approximately 30 days.
If a licensed Contractor applied and paid for the permit he or she may either cancel the permit and request a refund or transfer the permit to the Owner. If the permit is canceled, all work must stop until a new permit is issued. If the Contractor agrees to transfer the permit to the Owner work may continue without interruption.
The Contractor will be responsible for code compliance for all work done prior to cancellation or transfer of the permit. A site inspection may be required by an inspector to verify code compliance of work already completed.
