General information about lot grading approvals.
At two stages during construction, the builder or homeowner is required to have the lot inspected for grading approval. To make sure the house and lot are constructed in accordance with all requirements, you should be familiar with the procedure for both the rough grade and final grade stages.
In new subdivisions, developers often require a refundable deposit to ensure conformance with the Lot Grading Plan and architectural guidelines. Inquiries about deposits or architectural guidelines should be directed to the homebuilder or developer.
