Permit & Contractor Forms

This page is intended to provide information to homeowners and contractors to clarify submittal requirements for various permit types. Please review our Guide to Permit Forms, this list is not all-inclusive. Call Building Services at 214.509.4130 for questions about the requirements for your specific project. Protect your property and ensure your contractor has applied for and received a permit before starting work. Inspections are required. Homeowners that use Citizen Self Service to apply for a permit can also use it to schedule inspections. Another option is to use the Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system. Instructions to our IVR line will be on the permit. Inspection requests for work done on permitted projects should be requested by the general contractor. 

Information and tutorial guides for CSS can be found under the Permit and Inspection tabs on the Building Services page

The IVR Brochure will guide you through the process and provide codes for all inspection types.  When you are ready to request your inspection, be sure to have a copy of your permit available.  The final page(s) of your permit will list the required inspections for your project, whether it is commercial or residential. For your convenience, the inspection type codes will also be listed.
