If renovation is done internally, you do not need to apply for a permit. The permit only applies to external renovation works.

You have to first submit your form and renovation plans done by either your contractor or an authorised architect. Most of the time, your contractor will submit the paperwork for you because the design has to adhere to the so-called guidelines of MPSJ.

I believe you can locate the whereabouts of the form and guideline booklets in MPSJ if you call them before making a visit.

After submission, you will have to wait 1-2 months for the approval. If you go ahead with the renovation without waiting for MPSJ's approval, you risk being in violation and they may come tear your house down.

A lot of homeowners take this risk. I believe most contractors have connections with MPSJ personnels and will use bribe to speed up the process, or to get the submission approved. I am not encouraging anyone to do this but it remains a sad fact that this is an option that allows you to "get things done".

EDIT: Submission requires a fee, whichi I think is between RM1000-RM2000.

Tear down your house? LoL. I'm very certain you didn't mean that! The city council will tear down the new structure you've erected, yes. But not your entire property..... unless, your property was illegal to begin with...

Dogtown,

Any extended renovation will definitely require a permit. For examples, extended kitchen will require a standard plan that can be obtained from MPSJ and therefore do not require to submit a detailed drawn plan, however if internal structure requires changes then you will need to submit a structural plan to seek approval.

Please do not believe that MPSJ's staff or Contractors can do wonder to get the approval if your renovation is beyond the limits as stated by MPSJ. If you insisted on illegal renovation then you might face the possibility of your neighbours's complaints that MPSJ might demolish your renovation.

One of my friend's neighbour who was putting up a brick fence to replace the wire mesh fencing faced the offer from my friend to share cost but objected because he cannot met some requirement raised by my friend. He went ahead to do the brick fencing and eventually was sued by my friend and has to demolish the brick fencing and erected back the wire mesh fencing.

Do talk and seek consent from your neighbour unless you do not have immediate neighbour and in which case do check the limits.

I have done a similar brick fencing and has encoutered no problem with my immediate neighbours because I have obtained their consent and complied to their requirements, that is to leave some ventilated gaps.

If you build a solid brick wall it will totally stop any breeze or wind. Ventilation holes will allow at least some air movement.

The easiest way to obtain a renovation permit is to opt for the standard plan approval. Even the owner can submit themself, no need Architect.

Go to MPSJ to look at the guide book first, if the renovation intended falls within the categories listed, get the book for RM50 (don't know if they have increase the price). Instructions are stated clearly in there. If not will need to engage an Architect to submit for you.

When you submit the completed applications, you should get it within 2 weeks based on my experience previously. Best of all, my approval letter is dated the same day I submitted my application, as if it was an On-The-Spot approval!  :o

MPSJ will issue you a compound equivalent to 10 times the building plans processing fees. Therefore the more extension you do, the higher the compound!

King,
How is the building plans processing fees calculated? Is it based on a table or value or what?

Yep, you will get a CF specifically for your renovated house plus a full refund of your RM500 deposit  :)
