A simple permit, in this reference, is a permit that is either done over the counter or with minimal plan check. Inspections are required for all building permits. Once an inspection is scheduled a customer can then refer all questions directly to a building inspector. Below is a guide for what inspections are usually required to be called first; this will assist the customer if they are unfamiliar with the inspection process. Inspection requests will vary for more difficult projects. For further questions contact our inspection department at: (714) 667-8811
