How do I schedule an inspection?

Inspections are conducted between 9 am to 3:30 pm. Monday through Thursday. Building Inspections can be requested by calling the inspection hotline at 619-628-1360, Citizen Self-Service (CSS) portal, or via email. Staff will reach out on the morning of inspection with a detailed time frame for inspection.

If you are a California-licensed Contractor, Architect or Engineer, you may be able to self-certify select minor residential building permits without Building Division inspections. To see if you qualify for this program, please refer to the Building Self-Certification Program Procedures, Application, and Checklist (PDF). If you are unable to meet these requirements in order to obtain your required inspections, please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss other alternative inspection measures.

Please keep in mind that building inspections will not be conducted on Fridays.
