Frequently Asked Questions

Question: What can I do to be on the lookout for contractor scams?

Question: Can building permits be issued without potable water?

Answer: Yes, building permits can be issued as long as there is water, it does not have to be potable water. However, before a certificate of occupancy can be issued - the document needed to finalize the rebuild and move in - potable water must be available to the structure. This could be water that has tested clean from Paradise Irrigation District, a water tank, or other solution.

Question: I heard a rumor that you can’t build on a lot that is less than one-half acre, is that true?

Answer: No, that is not true. Any lot that has septic approval is buildable.
