What if I have a permit, but never called for an inspection?

Generally, permits expire after one-hundred eighty (180) days, if no inspections have been made. In order for the project to be complete, it must pass final inspection. If a permit expires before final inspection, the project is in violation of City Code. If this is the case with your project, call 512-847-0025. We will help you to reactivate the permit or apply for another with as little inconvenience as possible. Our interest is in seeing your project completed - including the final inspection. Should you have any other questions or need further clarification, please call us at 512-847-0025.
