I'm planning to buy a home in Maynard that has had unpermited work. What should I do?

As a prospective buyer, you may request that the current owner pull the necessary permit(s) and schedule inspection of the existing construction prior to the Purchase & Sale agreement. If the work does not pass inspection, you may wish to discuss remediation of the construction prior to completing the Purchase & Sale agreement. 

You may also accept the unpermited construction at your own risk.

BE AWARE: a home inspection is not the same thing as a building inspection.
