Town of Stafford Paying for Building & Mechanical Permits

                          PAYING FOR BUILDING PERMITS

___________________________________________________________________

Town of Stafford Building permit fees are calculated at: $14 per $1,000 of the cost of the project

                                                   AND

State of Connecticut Education Surcharge. an additional .26 per $1000 (calculated by $1000 only, please round up)for the CT State Education Surcharge.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS AS HOW TO CALCULATE THE FEES PLEASE CALL OUR OFFICE AT: 860-684-1775 OR EMAIL: MITTA@STAFFORDCT.ORG AND WE WOULD BE HAPPY TO ASSIST YOU.

___________________________________________________________________

Calculation for permit fees follows the cost factor schedule (see Table 1) and established building permit fees. Checks, cash and money orders are accepted for payment. The minimum fee will be applied to mechanical permits with an associated Building Permit, as long as the value of that work is included in the total construction value.  

Effective September 8, 2015, the fee structure for demolition and building permits was modified as follows:

    1. The minimum permit fee will be $50.00

    2. The Town of Stafford Building Office has developed a list of    "Estimated Unit Costs" for various standard improvements based on creating or expanding usable livable square footage. The main permit cost will cover all of the skilled trade work in the base amount. Plumbing, Heating, Sprinklers and Electrical will each apply for their individual mechanical permits after the main permit is issued, but will only be charged the minimum permit fee.

  3. Permits will still be required for individual renovations or repairs such as electrical upgrades, boiler and roof replacement.
