You will need to phone in your inspection request at (562) 431-2527 x1519 before 4:00 p.m. to be placed on the inspection schedule for the next day. When making your request, please have your permit number available, as this will expedite the scheduling process.

Final Inspection/Certificate of Occupancy

A final inspection can be requested by calling the phone numbers located on the red or green stickers adhered to the plans.

Once the Departments requiring final inspection have been contacted, the inspector will conduct a final inspection. The inspection card will be signed by all the inspectors once all requirements have been met. Once the project is complete and the inspection card has been signed by all appropriate City agencies, you may then apply for a Certificate of Occupancy.

No fees are required when the Certificate of Occupancy is issued after a final inspection; however, any outstanding inspection or permit fees will be collected before the certificate is issued.

Permit Expiration

Permits are valid for 180 days from the date of issuance. Regular inspections keep your permit valid. The Building Official may grant one extension, based on the circumstances of the request. Requests for an extension must be made in writing prior to the permit expiration date.
