§ 3105.06 Time Limit for Work Commencement and Suspension
   (a)   A permit issued shall be construed to be a license to proceed with the work and shall not be construed as authority to violate, cancel, alter or set aside any of the provisions of OBBC or of this Building Code, or other applicable laws, ordinances, rules or regulations, nor shall such issuance of a permit prevent the administrative officer having jurisdiction from thereafter requiring a correction of errors in plans or in construction, or of violations of OBBC or this Building Code or of other applicable laws, ordinances, rules or regulations.
   (b)   Any permit issued for work not regulated by the OBBC shall become invalid unless the work authorized by it shall have been commenced within three (3) months after its issuance, or if the work authorized by such permit is suspended or abandoned for a period of six (6) months after the time the work is commenced. However, for cause, one (1) or more extensions of time, for periods not exceeding thirty (30) days each may be allowed in writing by the administrative officer having jurisdiction.
   (c)   No person shall commence any work ordered by the Commissioner whether due to a violation, defect or otherwise, without obtaining all permits required by this Building Code to authorize such work. If not specified in the order of the Commissioner, all such work shall be completed within thirty (30) days, unless an extension for good cause is authorized in writing by the Commissioner.
   (d)   Work requiring OBBC plan approval shall be as regulated in the OBBC. Starting and completion times for permits resulting from an adjudication order or violation notice shall be determined by the building official, taking into account the nature and type of hazards present.
