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 for the Veteran’s Day holiday on Thursday, November 11, 202.  There will be no inspections that day.  If you request an inspection by the 2:00 deadline on Wednesday, November 10, your inspection will be scheduled the following Friday, November 12.  If your request is received after the Wednesday deadline, it will be scheduled the following Monday, November 15.  Please keep this in mind when making your inspection plans.
