To schedule an inspection:

To transfer to staff or obtain additional information:
Press 0.  You can also press * to hear an explanation of your current options.



If you are using a Smartphone or tablet: 
Do not use your texting or typing keyboard.  Our Inspection Line system "hears" the dialing tone produced by the alpha-numeric keys of your device.  The typing keyboard of phones or tablets do not produce a tone and are not recognized by our system.  Instead, use your dialing pad to enter both the letters and numbers of your permit.  As an example, BLD12-00001 should be entered by dialing 2531200001.  If your cellular connection is weak or interrupted, your input may also be affected; try your call from a land-line phone.


To get an estimated time of inspection:
Inspectors are assigned their routes and customers in the mornings, just before leaving for the day's calls.  Please call (714)738-6541 between 7:30 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. on the day of your scheduled inspection and, if possible, your inspector will give you an estimated time of arrival.  Due to our high volume of calls, we cannot guarantee that voice messages left on our main line can be retrieved and passed along in time to give you an estimate.  Inspectors usually return to the office after 3:30 p.m. if you have questions about inspection results or corrections left at the jobsite.

Someone 18 years of age or older should be at any residential location to allow entry.  If any pet is on site, please have it restrained and notify the inspector prior to entry.
