Building Permits

Scheduling Inspections

To schedule building or fire inspections, please call the Community Development Department at (407) 539-6248.  We make every effort to schedule inspection requests received before 4:00 p.m. for the next business day, however, please allow up to 48 hours for fire inspections. To expedite your request, be sure to provide our permit specialist with your permit number, address and type of inspection needed.  The City requires a project manager or supervisor call in all inspections including the sub-trades.  Sub-contractors may only request inspections for stand alone permits.  For non-scheduling inspection questions, please feel free to contact our inspectors directly Monday through Friday between 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at (407) 448-1882 for Tim Kettering or (407) 637-7455 for Philip Kersey.
