Default get a permit or not for finishing my basement

Hi all, I'm getting a company to finish my basement this summer. I'm wondering if I should get a building permit. They will not do anything structural. just putting up walls, flooring and some plumbing. they will be doing electrical work, but this part will have a permit. Most people seem to say that building permits just mean that the city knows you are adding square footage to your home and increase your property taxes. would you get a building permit for this? if I don't, do home inspectors come make sure everything is being done properly?
