Do I need to get a permit to demolish my house?
Generally, before demolishing a house your building you first need to acquire a permit. Getting a permit before beginning the work done will safeguard the professionals from committing violations.

What about the neighbours?
Demolition can cause a lot of mess and may create irritating noise especially to your neighbours. This may possibly ruin their mood and raise their temper. So before conflicts arise between you and your good neighbours, it is a must to establish precautions for them and to let them know about the possible inconvenience you might cause them.
