Schedule an Inspection

Request an Inspection

To request an inspection use the MyPermits online portal or call our automated inspection Line at (206) 870-6531. You will need the following information:
  • Permit number
  • Job site address
  • Contact name with phone number
  • Type of inspection requested


The cut off time for calling in or scheduling an inspection online is 2:00 pm.  Any requests left after that time may not be checked until 2:00 pm on the following day.  No same day inspections will be scheduled.


All permits and approved plans are required to be on site or in the general contractor's site offices at the time of the inspection. The general contractor or permit holder is responsible for insuring that all areas are inspected prior to concealment. View the list of guidelines the inspector will follow.

Areas of inspections need to be ready when the inspection is requested. The general contractor needs to keep the building official aware of the construction schedule and the projected completion date.

City offices will be closed Thursday & Friday, November 22 & 23, for the Thanksgiving Holiday.  No inspections will be available those days.  Inspection requests received before the 2 pm deadline on Wednesday, Nov. 21, will be scheduled for Monday, Nov. 26.  Inspection requests received after the Wednesday deadline, or any time through the holiday/weekend period, will be scheduled no earlier than Tuesday, Nov. 27.
