In my area, I 'think' that's also how it is, certain size and under, not permanent doesn't require a permit..
I have some BIG sheds, two that are 12 x 20.. I never pulled permits for them because they are not permanent They can be moved if I wanna pay someone to do it I do get taxed on them.
Basically any shed can be moved, the prebuilt ones are probably easier, but I've had ones moved that my husband built years ago , from one residence to another..

|Nigel||Things may have changed here, but it use to be a shed 12'x12' and under did not require a permit. CE is pretty week around here anyways.|

|llombardo||They are now saying that the inspector was there based on previous permits that were applied for but not completed by previous owner. Little did they know that I am still in contact with said person. Called him and he did not apply for anything that wasn't finished and inspected before house was sold. I let them know this and now they have brought it from a violation to a warning and I have no fines, but still have to get a permit for existing work that was done. It turns out the inspector in question also owns a GSD|

|Jax08||llombardo - is this a premade shed? Or is it a shed that was built in place? Is it afixed to the ground in any way that would make it permanent? You make them show the guidelines on what makes a shed portable or permanent. If it's a premade shed still sitting on a skid and not affixed to the ground...then it's portable.|

|jafo220||I would address it. I would call city hall and inquire about code enforcement being on private property. I wouldn't give them names or anything but I would find out whether this guy was within his rights to enter your property OVER your fence and not through an unlocked gate. If you have burried lines running through your property, you are required to grant officials access to your backyard. If your gates are locked and they cannot gain access, I think then they are required to notify you that they need access. At least thats how I understand it around here.|

|ozzymama||Maybe a neighbor or "concerned citizen" called about the shed you didn't have a permit for. You never know what people will get a bee in their bonnet over when someone can do something and they cannot.|

We've had 3 inspections, the first was when we upgraded the heating and did a bunch of electrical, that was an appointment a 8-12 or 12-4 thing LOL and the 2 outdoor inspections when we tore down a shed because we had to re-do electrical and remove the wood stove and when we fenced between the garage and town fence - that one had to go to council for a vote because we wanted to put the fence at the property line and the city owns the fence for the cemetery. The latter 2 were done without appointments whenever they were in the area. Same as when I called about the stones leaning on the cemetery fence, causing it to lean, they just fixed it and walked over and told me, heck Aecon didn't call when they ran the line for my gas meter, they just showed up, told me what week... I got a clue when they started drilling and it was winter, so to tie into the line the jack hammers weren't working through the concrete sidewalk so they beat the heck out of it with a back hoe.
