Permit Expediting

Need Permit Expediting in the Los Angeles County area?

Is this your first time in need of a permit and you don’t know where to start?
Have you waited for hours in line at the building department to get answers only to end up more confused than when you started?

You may want an extra bedroom or add a second story to your home. Perhaps you dream of adding a Recreation Room or Accessory Living Quarters to your existing Single Family Dwelling. To be done legally, all projects involving construction require building permits and must go through the rigorous scrutiny to be approved by the City of Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety.

If you have never been through a building permit process in Los Angeles, you may be in for a shock. It’s rarely simple as no two projects are the same. Different processes and application types may apply to the Scope of Work you are proposing.  This process can be very simple or incredibly complex depending on the location of your property and the scope of work you propose to do.

The degree of difficulty depends on factors such as:
  • Zoning Designation
  • Department of City Planning Ordinances
  • ZAA Hearing Decisions
  • Overlay Zones
In addition, complications arise if your property is located in:
  • Hillside Area
  • “Q” Condition Specific Plan Area
  • General Specific Plan Area
  • Enterprise Zone
  • Historical Preservation Overlay Zone
  • Design Review Board

Determining and understanding all of these property definitions and designations are vital before you start the process of getting plans from an Architect, Soils, or Structural Engineering firm.

  • We can help with coordinating all the Documents you will need & take care of going to the Building Department to see your Plans through the Permit process.
  • We can even design & draw a set of plans for you to get a Building Permit. Whether it’s a Residential, Business, Industrial, or Commercial project, new or remodel, we specialize in Permit processing.
