ATTENTION CONTRACTORS/OWNER-BUILDERS: THE CUT OFF TIME FOR NEXT BUSINESS DAY INSPECTION REQUESTS WILL BE 12 NOON, PER FLORIDA BUILDING CODE 110.5.
Inspections are required after obtaining permits per Florida Building Code. There are numerous types of inspections, which vary due to types of construction. If inspection requests are received by12 noon, the inspection will be scheduled for the next business day. If inspection requests are received after 12 noon, subject inspection will be scheduled in two business days or the next available business day thereafter.
In order to schedule an inspection, you must have your permit number and your three digit inspection code located on your permit receipt, permit card and/or online at our new Citizen Access Portal
After an inspection has been completed, an inspector will sign a permit card on the premises only when the subject inspection is approved. These permit cards are usually placed in an approved location. A disapproved inspection will constitute a $100 re-inspection fee. This fee must be paid prior to any further inspections.
Overtime Inspections: These require a minimum of $500 in the cost recovery account. Fees for services will be deducted at time and a half rate, plus expenses.
