We have found a house in a good location . It needs some work (replace furnace, put a sump pump, possibly upgrade electrical from 100 AMP to 200) . We are fine with those. The bigger problem is, the house has an additional bath and a new kitchen alongwith basement for which there was no permit and inspection (the old kitchen was converted to a office) . These were build sometime in 80s (house built in 1955). I checked with the building department. They said if I do any work (which I will need to as mentioned above), they might (if they see serious code violation) ask me to pull permit and bring the work up to today's code.Question -- How much can be the expected cost to bring bath and ktichen to today's code ? I am planning to ask for a discount to seller. Also, will there be a problem with mortgage for no permit
