Why do I need an electrical permit?

The homeowner just didn't want a permit!

The following text is a note sent today to the homeowner who refuses to have a permit and inspection:

"Thank you for considering providing an opportunity to be of service.

I can appreciate your position regarding the coercive nature of the requirements set forth, nor do I disapprove of your views in the least.
Even so, licensing and permit processes are established in the tenor of offering a guarantee of, at worst, minimally qualified personnel providing, at the least, minimally adequate code compliant installations.
The establishment and adoption of these standards by the municipality authorizes substantial penalties for both the owner and installer should they elect to evade the permit process, if discovered.
This system is intended to secure the safety and peace of mind of yourself and your family.
If an unfortunate situation resulting in a loss should develop from improper wiring, an unlicensed installer may not be insured and your own insurance may reject a claim.

Unfortunately, as a licensed electrical contractor, I cannot lightly overlook the impact of these obligations and the potential consequences.
Though you would be paying the fees, I will be the party interacting with the township.

Please feel free to call if I may be of any assistance.

Best regards

Thanks for this post.

I think it's always a good idea to make sure your electrician has a permit before letting them work on your electrical system. They have certain guidelines and rules that they should follow. It's also a reason to not try and do your own electrical work. I feel like most times that turns out bad.
