Who can obtain a building permit?

A property owner, contractor, licensed design professional, or authorized agent may apply for a permit. 

Once the permit is approved and ready to issue, the Permit Declaration Form must be signed by the property owner, authorized agent of the property owner, or the licensed contractor. A separate Owner/Builder Addendum is required if the permit is signed by the property owner. Both forms are provided at the time of approval.
