Building plans and copy of Ownership Unit Checklu\ist

Ownership units are the division of existing, recorded lots outside of the Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission subdivision process. The units are created as a mechanism to “separate” lots or buildings for ownership purposes and require a DPS commercial building alteration permit. The creation of ownership units is an administrative process only and is not intended to be a review or approval of construction, demolition, or alteration work. Any such work requires a separate permit for review and approval by DPS.  No inspections by DPS staff are required as part of the ownership unit process. Each party is expected to retain the appropriate legal counsel and design professional(s) when executing the required documentation.
