I’ve seen houses built in the early 60’s that have not had a permit pulled any time during it’s life and gone to the house and found new A/C, water heater and roof.
I also have found that you can’t always rely on the county pages. I did an inspection and found an “open” permit on the roof. The seller called the county bldg and they told him the permit was “finaled.” The info just never made it to the web site.
