At the time you pay the appropriate fee, you can also schedule an appointment for an inspector to come out and inspect your property. Before the inspector will appear, you must contact the Building and Safety department between 7:00 AM - 8:30 am to confirm your appointment and to get a window time for your inspection, if one is available.
