As if today’s blockbuster news that Hillary Clinton is again under investigation by the FBI over her emails wasn’t enough, now it’s been uncovered that Bill and Hillary have been renovating a house they bought next to their Chappaqua residence without several required local permits, according to building department records.
“The homeowners have to sign the applications because it’s their property,” said Building Inspector William Maskiell. “If you own the house, you’re responsible on everything that goes on with that house.”

An in-ground swimming pool at 33 Old House Lane — the 3,631-square-foot, ranch-style house the Clintons bought for $1.16 million in August — had been backfilled and covered with gravel, according to an October report from town Building Inspector William Maskiell. Maskiell, who said he visited the home Oct. 5, after the department received a complaint about excavation done there, said as he headed to the basement to talk to the contractor, he noticed the kitchen, floors and walls appeared to have been recently renovated and new electrical fixtures were being installed in the ceiling. The person who complained was not identified. h/t lohud
Maskiell said he told the contractor that permits were required.
The major outstanding permits at 33 Old House Lane are for the filling-in of the pool and the home renovation, Maskiell said.
Permit issues that continue to go unaddressed can lead to fines against a homeowner and/or a contractor, he said.
At 15 Old House Lane, a home at the end of a cul-de-sac where the Clintons have lived on and off since buying it for $1.7 million in 1999, Maskiell wrote that “during a standard records search and follow-up conversations” there were some outstanding permits there as well. That includes an electrical inspection at a library/gym, and a sprinkler sign-off by an engineer and the town water department, according to the building inspector’s October reports.
