Permits by Fax

(818) 225-7329

Licensed Contractors and Homeowners are now able to fax a permit application for certain projects and receive a permit, within the same working day, by coming into Building & Safety at City Hall.  We will have your permit ready when you walk in.  Just hand us a check or cash and you’re ready to go.  In order to do this: 

  • Print the Fax Permit Application and Fee Worksheet
  • Fill in all pertinent information, including whether you’ll be paying by check, cash or credit card.
  • Return all three pages via fax at the above number (the application form must be completed entirely and legibly).
  • No permit can be issued without Workers Compensation coverage verification.  This requirement does not apply to a contractor that does not have employees.


  • Installation or replacement of furnaces or HVAC units in existing dwellings.
  • Repair or replacement of gas, water or sewer lines.
  • Replacement of water heaters and plumbing fixtures.
  • Minor electrical work (i.e. additional outlets, lights, etc.) for Residential only.

Please remember!  An application for a permit is not a permit!  Do not start work until you have received your permit.  You may be responsible for penalty fees if you start work before the permit is issued.  Having a faxed permit application that is in process will not exempt you from these penalty fees. 

If you have any questions, please call Monica Shinder at (818) 224-1725.
