How to Book an Inspection

Applicants can request an inspection using Cloudpermit.

Please have the following information ready:

Inspections require 24-hour notice to guarantee the inspection. Staff and inspectors do their best to accommodate all time sensitive requests. Please leave pertinent information in the notes section of your request.

No inspections will be conducted on statutory holidays. You will need to request the next available day. Thank you for your continued cooperation with our inspection schedule.

How to request an inspection through Cloudpermit

  1. Login to Cloudpermit and open the workspace for the permit that you are requesting an inspection for. It will take you to the WORK tab.
  2. Under Inspections at the bottom of the page, click ‘Show Upcoming Inspections’
  3. Click ‘Request Inspection’ on the next inspection that is listed. A pop-up window will come up titled New Inspection Request. Inspection requests must be made by 3pm the previous business day.
  4. Complete ‘Requested date’ and ‘Requested time slot’ and add additional information if required. This is a good spot to tell the inspection where the permit package will be if there will not be someone on site, or if there is a locked gate etc. Click ‘Create Inspection Request’.
