Building Permits:  When Don’t You Need Them? 
Many times residents are not aware or are in doubt whether they are required to obtain a permit for various repairs.  In 1977, the State of New Jersey adopted the Uniform Construction Code, known as the U.C.C.  The U.C.C. regulates when a construction permit is required.  The regulation states, “A building or structure shall not be constructed, extended, repaired, removed, or altered “EXCEPT FOR ORDINARY REPAIRS”.

WHAT ARE ORDINARY REPAIRS?  The following is a list of ORDINARY MAINTENANCE, which has been supplied by the Southampton Township Construction Office in order to help our residents determine whether a permit is required.  This listing is not all-inclusive.

  1. Exterior and interior painting.
  2. Installation, repair or replacement of any interior finishes of less than 25 percent of the wall area in any given room, in a one or two family dwelling.  This includes plastering and drywall installation. *Paneling shall not be considered an ordinary repair.
  3. Wall papering or vinyl wall covering.
  4. Replacement of glass in any window or door.  Replacement glass shall be of a type and quality that complies with the minimum requirements of the code.
  5. Installation and replacement of any window or door, including garage doors, in the same opening without altering the dimensions or framing of the original opening.  This shall include storm windows and storm doors.  Installation and replacement of means of egress and emergency escape windows and doors may be made in the same opening without altering the dimensions or framing of the original opening, and shall not reduce the required height, width, or net clear opening of the previous window or door.
  6. Repair of any non-structural member such as a partition railing or kitchen cabinet.
  7. Repair or replacement of any interior or exterior trim, decoration or moldings.
  8. Replacement or installation of any flooring material.  Carpet installation or replacement is considered an ordingary repair only in a one or two family dwelling.
  9. Repair of existing roofing material not to exceed 25 percent of the total roof area within any 12-month period.
  10. Repair of existing siding with like material not exceeding 25 percent of the total building exterior wall area within any 12-month period.
  11. Repair or replacement of any part of a porch or stoop, which does not structurally support a roof above.
  12. Replacement or installation of screens.
  13. Installation of any roll or batt insulation when installed adjacent to or not more than 1 1/2” from an interior finish.
  14. Replacement of exterior rain water gutters and leaders.
The following items are considered ORDINARY MAINTENANCE and, therefore, an Electrical Permit is not required. The Southampton Township Construction Office is providing this list in order to help our residents determine whether an electric permit is required. This listing is not all-inclusive. Information concerning ordinary maintenance for plumbing will be provided in a future newsletter.

  1. The replacement of any receptacle, switch, or lighting fixture rated at 20 amps or less and operating at less than 150 volts to ground with a like or similar item. Replacement of receptacles in locations where ground-fault circuit interrupter protection is required in the electrical subcode, shall not be considered ordinary electrical repairs.
  2. Repairs to any installed electrically operated equipment such as doorbells, communication systems, and any motor operated device. Provided, however, that if fire protection systems are interrupted for repairs the fire official shall be notified in accordance with the building subcode.
  3. Installation of communication wiring as covered by article 800 of the electrical subcode in one and two family dwellings, or the alteration/rearrangement of existing communications wiring in other occupancies provided however that the rearrangement does not involve penetration of a fire rated assembly and is not in a hazardous location as defined in chapter 5 of the electrical subcode.
  4. Replacement of domestic dishwasher.
  5. Replacement of kitchen range hoods in single-family dwellings.

Dozens of code violations issued in massive investigation on Long Island

SOUTHAMPTON, Long Island (WABC) -- The town of Southampton has issued 215 code violations with fines ranging from $100 to $1,000 against 28 landlords. Some of those violations included overcrowded housing, illegal rentals and non-functioning smoke and CO detectors.

Inspectors randomly inspected 42 residences this week, mostly around the Hampton Bays.

"In fact, 17 properties had no violations," said Town Code and Compliance and Emergency Management Administrator Steven Troyd. "This should be a warning to all landlords throughout the town, make sure you are in compliance with all town codes or you will face fines or incarceration."

It's one of the largest investigations of its kind in the town in recent history, officials tell Eyewitness News.

The town says it has issued a notice to the owner of a home on Hills Station Road in Shinnecock Hills for having 17 people living in a four bedroom house. The town says rooms were built in the basement, which is against code.

There also were no smoke alarms. The town says the owner of that property has been cited eight times in the past for failure to secure rental permits.

Town officials said they also issued notices to the Bel-Aire Cove Motel in Hampton Bays for having bedbugs and roaches. The town says within the past month the motel was without power for four days because it didn't pay its electric bill.

The owners of the properties have a certain length of time to fix the violations or face further penalties. The duration they have to remedy the violations depends upon the type of violation and if they have received one in the past.

The town says it conducted the investigations because it's a life and safety issue.

SOUTHAMPTON, NY — Southampton Town has begun to warn residents of strategic code enforcement crackdowns in their communities.

Southampton has created a "compliance through education" component to a program aimed at strategic enforcement.

Letters are now being mailed to property owners, letting them know about the code enforcement efforts, meant to help enhance public safety, the town said.

According to town officials in the code enforcement department, as well as property owners in the Hamptons West area near Gabreski Airport, the move appears to be working.

So far, 135 letters along with copies of the law were sent out in December, warning property owners in Hamptons West that a strategic operation in their area would be coming in January.

Many property owners have called the code enforcement department, and have come into Town Hall seeking rental permits and asking what needs to be done to bring their properties up to code, town officials said.

"We already have had people come into the office and fill out permit applications as a result of those letters," said Public Safety and Emergency Management Administrator Steven Troyd. "Our goal is compliance and public safety."

The new approach comes on the heels of 3 recent crackdowns around Southampton Town, a release from Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman said.

Last week, a strategic code enforcement operation spotlighting the Old Quogue Road/Riverside area uncovered several violations, including overcrowded houses and excessive vehicles, town officials reported.

Code enforcement officers inspected 24 properties and issued 17 notices of violation and 2 summonses for illegal rentals, overcrowding, litter and debris, and excessive vehicles, Schneiderman's release said.

Two other strategic inspections; in October in the Hampton Bays area and in November in the Flanders/Riverside area, found numerous violations.

Violators are given 30 days to comply before inspectors return to make sure the properties have been brought into compliance with town code, town officials said.

A Day With Code Enforcement

How do you like this. Huh, asshole. - The scoundrel has finished himself in a handful.

Now discussing:

I am so I wanted to try your sperm and now you finished so much of it in my mouth. My son-in-law flipped the switch and turned on the light in the room, Oleg stood in my wife's nightgown and I stood. Next to him naked with a fallen member. - But it's not fair Vit. - I gave you my sperm to drink.
