The time it takes to get a building permit depends on the type of permit. Generally residential permits are issued in 1-5 days. Commercial projects take a little more time.  Three to four weeks is the typical time frame. Some permits are issued immediately.

How do I arrange a building inspection?

Once your building permit is issued you will be given paperwork explaining how to call into the automated inspection request system and request an inspection. If the permit was issued for a gas leak repair or emergency electrical service repair, the Building Inspection Division will dispatch an inspector once we are notified that the work has been completed.
