Construction Permits...for your safety and security, easier to get than you might think.
Homeowners thinking about remodeling their home or adding other improvements, such as decks, spas or retaining walls, many times have a number of questions about building permits. This information is designed to give homeowners basic knowledge of when construction permits and other approvals are required by their City. It also answers some of the most frequently asked questions. Since each construction project is unique, we invite you to call your city's permit department for answers to your specific question.
What are permits and why do I need one?
Permits are the way the city regulates construction. This is designed to ensure that all construction in the city is safe. The safety of the occupants of buildings is the primary reason for having construction codes. The City of San Diego enforces the Uniform Building Code. There are several different types of permits based on the type of construction--structural, plumbing, mechanical and combination (used for single-family home construction and other small projects). In addition, the complete demolition and relocation of buildings also requires permits.
Obtaining the permit is just the first step in the process. In this step, you need to have created plans for the city to review, make a plot plan for your property, and show the type of construction you'll be using.
Once plans are approved, you need to build the project to those plans. If any changes are made to the plans, they must be made with the city's approval.
The second half of the process is the inspection of the work.
