We are looking to finish out basement and one of the guys we brought in said we need to find out if we can get a permit for it, because our house was built in the 1950's the ceiling is 76" vs the current requirement of 86". I would assume we grandfather into that. Either way, I've scoured the internet and local government websites and cant find jack on regulations. Does anyone know where to look, or do they hold this so we have to pay them to come out?
This is for Quincy, MA.
