Building Permit Extension

Permit Description

A permit extension can be requested for an unexpired permit – a permit that has not met its expiration date listed on the permit or a permit that has had on-going work within the last year and demonstrates that the permit is being pursued in good faith. If approved, an extension can be granted for a period of six months per extension, with a maximum of four total extensions not to exceed a two year period. Extension requests include all construction and trade permits (Electrical, Plumbing, Mechanical and Boiler permits).

Submission Requirements

  1. Please be sure to include any documentation that supports work as on-going if the request is made beyond 6 months of the expiration date on the issued permit. Examples of accepted supporting documentation include field reports, dated invoices of completed work by your contractor, and inspection reports.
  2. If an inspection has occurred within the last year, a permit extension may not be needed. Once the inspection has occurred, regardless of whether the inspection was approved or failed, your permit expiration date is now a year from the date of the last inspection.

Application Process

  1. Begin your permit application under the permit type of Building Permit Extension.
  2. Complete all required questions/fields (i.e. enter the original permit number).
  3. Upload all supporting documents before completing your submission.
  4. Applications are reviewed electronically by the next business day.
