After I get a Building Permit, am I finished?

No! As important as it is to have your permit, it is equally important to make sure all your required inspections are made and your construction work is approved and finalized. You must schedule inspections at certain stages of the project and a final inspection after the work has been completed. The inspection process ensures your work, or your contractor’s work, is done safely and in accordance with current California building codes.

It is the responsibility of the person doing the work to call for, arrange access, and obtain a final inspection. To schedule an inspection, call 650 991-8061 before two working days before the desired date and have your permit number available.

Upon successful completion of a final inspection, the Building Inspector will sign your permit job card. The signed permit job card is your record of permitted work completion.
