To schedule a building inspection, retrieve your two hour time window, cancel your inspection, or view your plan check status, please call 408-615-2400. This automated service is available 24 hours a day. Please have your 9 digit building permit number (for example, BLD2016-01234) and your 3 digit inspection code ready when you call.

When scheduling inspections, the system gives the option of morning or afternoon time preference requests. Inspection time requests are not guaranteed and may be subject to change depending on the inspectors' workload and routes for that day. Inspections requests will be automatically scheduled for the first available business day. Please listen carefully for the scheduled inspection date.

Please call 408-615-2400 after 8:45 a.m. on the day of your inspection to retrieve your two hour time window as to when your inspector will arrive at your job site. Time windows will not be available until the day of the inspection.

Inspections can be cancelled using the automated system. If you are calling after 7:30 a.m. to cancel a same day inspection, please call the office main line at 408-615-2440 and press "0" and an Office Specialist will assist in the cancellation of the inspection.
