    No, we do not charge an additional fee for our building permit application service. We offer free building permit application service for all our projects.
  • Does Permit Works guarantee zoning compliance of your project?
    The short answer is no, as much as we love to ensure your project complies with the zoning before we begin, however it is not possible to do so as city policy changes very often. Even though we did help you inquire about zoning requirements for your project, we still do not guarantee zoning compliance. Alternatively, we strongly encourage our potential clients to give a city a call and inquire about themselves and get your zoning answer from the city firsthand. It doesn’t mean Permit Works does not care about your project zoning requirements, we simply cannot guarantee it.
  • Does Permit Works guarantee Minor Variance Approval?
    No. We do not guarantee minor variance result. This application process is dependent on city planning staff, your neighbors and the committee members opinion.
  • What is Permit Works payment schedule?
    For a simple project, we usually charge 50% for a retainer, and all the remaining fees will be paid prior to the building permit application. For a more complex project, we usually separate it into four different stages and each payment will be 25% of the total fee. All remaining fees will be paid in full prior to the building permit application.
  • Are there any hidden fee from Permit Works?
    We offer unlimited design revision to all our projects during the design phase, meaning we don’t charge extra for design revision. If during building permit review and city plan examiner request clarification or revision to the drawings, we do not charge an additional fee to revise our drawings. Additional fees are only applicable if the project scope of work is changed.
  • Will Permit Works charge revision fee?
    We do not charge revision fee during our design phase or drawings revision requested by the city examiner. Once the design is confirmed by you and we have sent our drawings to our consultants such as HVAC and structural engineers or building permit application then revision fee will apply.
