House Demolition Tips
House demolition is one of those demolition services we strongly urge our clients to not undertake themselves. House demolition is time consuming and complex. In Los Angeles County, house demolition is also a process wrapped in red tape of permits and legal requirements. But there are some things you should know before undertaking a house demolition.
- Make sure you have full legal rights to demolish a house. Before demolishing a house make sure you have proper legal clearances to demo a house. Check with your bank to make sure that a house demolition won’t invalidate your mortgage. Also check with the city to make sure the home your trying to demolish isn’t a historical site or another type of protected site.
- Test for hazardous materials. Especially with older homes, make sure you check for hazardous materials like lead paint and asbestos before demolishing a house. Removing asbestos and lead paint requires special abatement procedures and will great increase the cost of a house demolition.
- Check into permitting. House demolition in any city will require some sort of permit from the city. Be sure you check into the proper permitting for a house demolition.
