UPDATE: Inspections will be limited to thirty (30) per day from October 14th through the 18th due to limited staff availability with inspectors being out for training at CALBO Ed Week. Those inspections received after the cut off limit will receive priority the following business day until all carryover inspections and inspection requests are all fulfilled. The list of Scheduled Inspections with two-hour time window will continue to be available on the website each day by 8:30A, but added will be a carryover list for contractors/owners to verify their request was received and is pending being scheduled.

Inspections for work authorized by a current Building Permit are Scheduled by leaving a Voicemail on the Inspection Request Hotline at (760) 777-7153. Requests are accepted until 4:00 PM during normal business hours for next business day inspections. Next day requests received after 4:00 PM or same day requests will not be accepted. Inspections will not be scheduled more than two business days in advance. 

Building inspections are performed Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM excluding Holidays.  

Information needed for an inspection

We recommend that you call from a land line phone rather than a cell phone when scheduling an inspection for better audio quality of your recording. When calling to schedule an inspection, please provide the following information:

  • Area or the development where your inspection is located
  • Complete street address of the job location    
  • Permit Number on your job card
  • Type of inspection you are requesting
  • Contact phone number in case we have questions

If your inspection is in a gated community, please leave gate access information or make arrangements for access with your inspector. If this is a re-inspection, please indicate this in the message.

Cancelling an inspection

Call the Building Division at (760) 777-7125 to cancel an inspection.  Do not call the Inspection Request Hotline to cancel an inspection.
