Building and Safety provides many permit
services for the average home owner as well as contractors. Permits
can be obtained at any of our Construction
Service Centers or from our online permit service called e-permit. Depending
on the complexity of your project, you may be able to get your
permit the same day with Express Permit or e-permit. For a list of
applicable permits click the link Express/e-permit
Informational Bulletin. For more complex jobs, you may require plans
to be reviewed by our Plan Check personnel. Click here for more
information on Plan Check.

Permits are issued for many different types of work,
including Building, Electrical and Plumbing just to name a few. If
you have a specific question on whether the work you are performing
requires a permit, please feel free to call our Customer
Call Center for further assistance. You can also check out our Frequently Asked
Questions page for answers to our most common questions.
Building and Safety has also gone to great lengths to provide a
variety of documents available online, including permit related
documents. We have included a permit section on our Forms page that
provides access to a variety of Permit Applications and
other related documents. We also provide many publications that are
very useful to home owners and contractors. Within our main menu on
LADBS.org, we have a category dedicated to all of our publications
including our Informational
Bulletins section. Many bulletins are available that may facilitate
the permit process. Diagrams for carports, patio covers, the popular
Type V Sheet and many more are provided for your use.
We hope to make your permit process go as smooth as possible. We
welcome all forms of feedback that may help us better serve you.
