What determines the cost of a building permit?
Building permit fees are taken directly from the Building Code. Building permits fees are based on the valuation of the job, this includes materials and labor. There is no minimum valuation which will exempt you from needing a permit. If you are using a contractor, a bid proposal should be included with your building permit application. If you are doing the work yourself, you should bring a list of materials and a cost breakdown to the Building Department at City Hall.
