Why do I need a Limited Application Alteration for permit expediting?
A Limited Application Alteration (LAA) is an application submitted by a plumber to do minor plumbing or gas line work, like adding a gas meter or replacing a boiler. LAAs are not the same as construction permits; unlike permits, LAAs don’t involve construction, so they can be signed off by a plumber. Permits, meanwhile, must be drafted by an architect and allow construction work. As a result, filing a LAA is much faster and easier. To qualify for an LAA, the project must meet the following guidelines.
