Hi John,

If you are working with a buyer agent ask him/her to look into this for you. If not, you will want to start by going to or calling the building department for Stoughton. (http://www.stoughton.org) Let them know you are considering buying this property and would like to know if there are any building permits on file for it.

Hope that helps!
Jake

John:

I would recommend definitely contacting the building department with your attorney to determine if there are any building code violations and/or issues with the Town before purchasing the property.

Good Luck!
