Permitting Process
Overview
If you or any contractor is doing framing, electrical work, plumbing, mechanical work, structural concrete, or other type of construction on your home, business, or property, you must obtain permits for such work as detailed in the City of Fair Oaks Ranch Building Codes Ordinance. 

The permitting process can take up to five business days provided all required documents have been received.

Who Is Responsible
In most cases, your contractor(s) is responsible for obtaining permits and you, as the homeowner, will not have to become personally involved with the Building Codes Office. If the permit is issued to the homeowner, which is permissible by state law, the homeowner is the sole responsible party for any discrepancies found during an inspection; therefore, it is recommended the permit be issued to the contractor doing the work .

Posting Permits
The permit must be posted on the job site along with the site's physical address readable from the street.  The job can begin as soon as the permits are issued; and, may continue subject to required inspections and approvals. Listed below are documents required for a new home permit:
For information on other projects please contact City Hall at (210) 698-0900.
