When do I pay for my permit?

For projects over $200,000 valuation, a $1,500 non-refundable partial payment is required at the time the application is obtained to the Building Services Department. Payment of the balance of fees due and permit fees for all other projects is required at the time of issuance of the building permit. Payment shall be made prior to the commencement of construction.

  • Cancellation: In the event of cancellation, a fee of 20% of the permit fees will be charged.
  • Deposit for final inspection: Because the 2012 International Building Code requires final inspections and certificates of occupancy, a minimum deposit of $1,500 or 10% of the total of the permit fees whichever is greater and shall be made at the time of the building permit application is submitted. Deposits for final inspection shall be released to the depositor upon successful final inspection and issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy.
