Lessons from Architect Ryan Taylor: A Private Option for Permitting/Inspections
Georgia has a relatively new and little-known option for private permitting + inspections of buildings (houses are buildings). Government offices closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic so permitting and inspection operations by public officials have ceased or slowed significantly.
You might be able to avoid the financial and emotional strain of a stalled project by using a private professional provider (PPP) to conduct your permitting and inspection operations. This presentation explains how to use PPPs in Georgia and what to look for even if you’re not in Georgia.
