Minimally, the building inspector will issue a "cease work" order until you obtain the proper building permit. The minimum penalty for doing work without a permit is that you will be charged twice the normal fee for the building permit for the type of work you are having done. If the work being done is in violation of the building codes or the zoning regulations, the work must be changed to comply or else the work must be undone. Matters of non-compliance are referred to the City's Code Enforcement Board which has the authority to review the case and impose fines up to $250 per day until compliance is achieved.
