Scheduling Inspections

You may now request building inspections online by going to the Citizens Access Portal  at

User Guide (pdf)

The first step is creating a log-in by registering. All you need is an email address. You will be asked to create a password. After creating your log-in, you may request an inspection, review the results or cancel a scheduled inspection.


Enter Permit Number and Confirm Job Site Address: After logging-in, click on Schedule Inspection in the left column. On the Inspection Request screen, enter the Permit number, which is the nine-digit number beginning with BS. After you enter the permit number, the address of the project will populate. Check that the address is correct.

Select a Date and Type of Inspection: Select a date. You may schedule an inspection up to three days in advance, except for weekends and holidays. Then select the type of inspection. You may also add a comment to the inspector. When finished, click on Schedule Inspection Request at the bottom right corner. You may schedule more than one inspection by repeating this process.


Click on Cancel Inspection in the left column and follow the dialog boxes. You may also review scheduled inspections by clicking on View Results in the left column.

Inspectors are available to answer questions over the counter or by phone from 7:00 - 8:00 am and 3:00 - 3:30 pm at 818-238-5220.

Inspections may also be requested over the phone 8:00 am - 5:00 pm by calling our office 818-238-5220.


After obtaining your building permit, you may contact your inspector if you are uncertain at which point in the construction process you should schedule an inspection.  A general good practice, however, is to not cover anything up that the inspector needs to verify.
