Is It Risky to Buy a Home with Unpermitted Work?

    This article lists lots of financial and time-wasting drawbacks of legalizing unpermitted work and almost no incentive for it.

      Thank you for your comments and for reading. You raise an interesting point. By removing hurdles for prospective buyers, sellers who legalize unpermitted work should expect a quicker sale and a higher sale price (in part, because they can then include the extra rooms/square footage in the listing and marketing documents). That seems like a good incentive to us!
