Hey there…. I thought this might be helpful or who knows one day I become rich and have few houses to renovate, then this will serve as a reference for me… Hahahahaa!!! it is nite time now, so it’s ok to dream 😉
I have no idea that we need to apply for a permit to do renovation until our contractor told us about that. Such a hassle I thought but turned out, the whole process was actually pretty easy and fast.. Just that we need to forked out extra money for the processing fees and drawing 😦 Not cheap though.
So, to start a renovation, you’ll need to apply a permit from the local council or if you are doing extension, you’ll need to submit drawing for approval. Of coz you can skip all this but there will be some risk if the enforcement decided to pay a visit especially in new housing area…
We donno what is the market rate but heard it could go up to few thousand just for the architect to do the drawing and the submission 😮 The cheapskate me of coz will not pay such high amount so I called up our local council – Majlis Perbandaran Sepang to inquire about the process and get to know that they have their own internal architect offering the same service at RM700 per drawing. I dunno if it’s really cheap but one thing for sure, it couldn’t go wrong right, bcoz that drawing is from ther own internal people…
Since the overall price is still cheaper than what was offered by my contractor which he will ask a runner to help, I’ve decided to apply it on my own.
The permit/sticker will be given after full payment and you can start the renovation immediately 🙂
The drawing however will only be ready after 2-3 weeks.
Applying for the permit or drawing submission is easy. All you new to prepare is as below:
1. Photocopy of S&P
2. Photocopy of IC
3. Photocopy of CF
4. Photocopy of floor plan
Total cost are RM1371 and cost breakdown are as below:
1. Application for permit : RM161 (single floor) (RM201 for 2 floor)
2. Sticker : RM10
3. Deposit for the big rubbish bin : RM500 (2 tong)
4. Drawing plan : RM700
Now that we have the permit ready, we are just waiting for the renovation to start next month after considering the good day.
Hope everything goes smoothly then….
