First, check with your local county building permit authority to see whether or not the type of work you did is covered by their ordinance.Typically, doing what you did without permits can often be cured simply by obtaining the permits afterward. You can have the electrical work inspected by a licensed electrician. If you feel that you will need to prove the existence of permits when you sell the house, then you might want to go ahead and pull them now; however you might want to consult with your real estate listing broker before you spend the money on that. I hope that this information is helpful
