Permit Records

Need Copies of building Permits?

Building permit records can verify square footage, confirm a legal addition, verify number of units, confirm zoning requirements, or can increase selling value by showing all work that has been completed on a property.

We can get you copies of all building permits on file quickly and accurately, for any residential or commercial property in the Los Angeles County. We understand your particular needs so you get the most accurate and thorough research possible.
