How much time will I have to obtain a permit?

Under most circumstances you will be given 30 days.  This may involve simply stopping the illegal use demolition or obtaining the necessary permits.  Under some circumstances an extension of time may be granted when the property owner is steadily working to resolve the problem and is making progress.
