How can I find out if there are open permits on a house I am buying?
Talk to the local building department. They will be able to tell you what permits were pulled for the property and whether they were all closed or some are still open.

Blasic Smith Team answered:
when someone makes an offer on a home, the listing agent says there is another offer and its against the law to give out that info, is it true?
Hi Kathy,

It is unethical to disclosure the details of the other offers but not the fact that there are other offers.
