Tim is an unknown quantity at this point
Bill and Paul both give good advise and samples on this question. I just wanted to add that in most of the states which I have done work in, the general rule is that if the flat work isn't public( city side walk, approaches, curb and gutter, etc), and no structure is to be built on it(room additions, decks, sun porches, etc) then no permit is usually required. Definitely check out and comply with any of the building codes though!

I think it is wisdom that one personally secures all the proper permits before even starting any work at the job site without exceptions. These fees are over and above any signed bids, and our contracts state this in detail. We Got burnt once from a property owner that claimed to have all the permits, but didn't. I hate taking classes over at the school of hard knocks! Tuitions a killer!!! Tim
Common sense, isn't all that common!
