This depends on the scope of your renovations. All renovations need to be done to code with many requiring a permit.
Your best bet is to contact your municipality to determine their requirements and be on the safe side. You don't want to invest time and money to find that when selling the property in the future.....to do so will require you to remove much of what has been done. This happens..........................it will be inspected for the future sale, which is where many code violations are uncovered.
