Hi Helen: Your local township may indeed require a permit, an inspection, and a C.O. issued for the renovation. I would check with them to find out if it is necessary. However, the issue may not come up during the sale because you didn't add or take away a bathroom and/or didn't change the footprint of the house. Also, if you removed a shower, did it turn a full bath into a half bath? Before putting your house on the market, if you'd like to track the real estate activity in your area, I would be happy to provide you with a Listing Book account. It's free and there's no obligation whatsoever. Please feel free to email me with your home address and email address.
