Subject to the limitation imposed by G.S. 160D-1104(b), as the work pursuant to a building permit progresses, local inspectors shall make
as many inspections thereof as may be necessary to satisfy them that the work is being
done according to the provisions of any applicable State and local laws and of the
terms of the permit. In exercising this power, members of the inspection department shall have a right
to enter on any premises within the jurisdiction of the department at all reasonable
hours for the purposes of inspection or other enforcement action, upon presentation
of proper credentials. If a building permit has been obtained by an owner exempt from licensure under G.S. 87-1(b)(2), no inspection shall be conducted without the owner being present, unless the plans
for the building were drawn and sealed by an architect licensed pursuant to Chapter
83A of the General Statutes.
