Do I need a permit to remodel a kitchen?
There are a few areas where a permit is typically needed, and a few others that have no requirements or restrictions. Depending on where you live, you should find your local permit departments and get a better idea.
Standard remodeling projects that involve replacing sinks, cabinets and appliances don’t need permits in most areas. However, if you’re demolishing load-bearing walls, installing new circuits and plumbing, you might need a permit for that project. For any modification related tasks that change the way the plumbing and electric work in your home, you might need a permit.
