Yes. The reason for this is that local building codes are put in place to ensure that your electrical remodeling and any other type of remodeling you plan on doing is done safely. While you might not like the idea of having to pay for a permit in order to be in compliance with codes, you have to realize that doing so makes your home safer and can cause less of a headache and financial stress should an accident occur.
If you proceed with your electrical remodeling without checking building codes and you violate them, you can be subject to fines and penalties. If your remodeling is complete when the violation is discovered, you’ll have to return your home to its original condition.
