I'm interested in opening the wall between the kitchen and the "Dining Room" in an apartment that I'm renting. Before I pitch this to the landlord, do I need a permit for making that kind of modification in a non load-bearing wall? realistically I would only be cutting through one 2x4 and building a header in for the span.

- This question does not appear to be about home improvement within the scope defined in the help center.
Assuming you are in the US, you generally don't need a permit for cosmetic changes. Everything else you do. To find out for sure contact your local government building department.
