Which building permit date is used for the Building Code section of the wind mitigation form?
Friday, July 20, 2018
There are always multiple dates listed on a building permit, but the date that determines which building code edition that the home must comply with is the date of application for the permit—not the date the permit was issued—so it is the one used for the wind mitigation form. An example from an Alachua County building permit is shown below.
The time between the application and issuance of a building permit can be anywhere from several days to months. The permit shown above took nearly a month to be reviewed and issued. The “CO Date,” which is the Certificate of Occupancy, is the date typically used by Property Appraisers as the date of construction of a home on property records. It is often the following year when the permit is issued late in the year.
