Expiration of Permit: A permit remains valid as long as work is progressing and inspections are conducted. A permit shall become invalid if the authorized work is not commenced within six months after the issuance of the permit or if the authorized work is suspended or abandoned for a period of six months. Cancelled permits cannot be refunded or reinstated.

Re-inspection fees: Re-Inspection fees cannot be paid the same day rejection notices are written. Inspection results are not entered and associated fees accrued, until the next business day following inspections.

Need Help? Support staff is available to assist you in understanding required documentation needed to file applications. Support staff will also assist you as much as possible so that all necessary permits to complete your project may be obtained. Please keep in mind, however, support personnel aren’t inspectors and therefore, some questions are best directed to particular trade inspectors.
