Construction and Repair Permits

Prior to undertaking any new construction or repair job, it is important to contact the Building Department to determine whether or not plans are in conformance with building codes. Permits are needed for all new construction or certain repairs and other additions, i.e. fences, swimming pools, storage sheds, etc. If you have questions, call our office at (708) 599-5500.

In order for every section in the City to have a high standard of construction or rehabilitation work, the Building Department issues what is termed a Building Permit. This permit is a safeguard to the Community, that the work being done is in conformance with zoning, health, and fire-safety standards as authorized under the City of Burbank Building Code. A permit is necessary for the protection of the individual performing the job, for the property owner, and for the City. A safe, general guide to follow is that permits are required in all cases of new construction. With respect to existing buildings, permits are required in all instances where the proposed work involves structural changes, light and ventilation, exits, size of rooms, fire-safety requirements, sanitary facilities or any other work that may result in changes to the heights, area, capacity, use or occupancy of a building.

GARAGE SALE PERMITS:
Issued by the Building Department. Garage sales are not permitted on Sunday and are LIMITED TO TWO PER YEAR. Call (708) 599-5500 x242 for guidelines and fees.

PERMITS NOT REQUIRED:
Ordinarily, a permit is not required for any minor repairs as may be necessary to maintain existing parts of a building or plumbing systems, but such work or alterations may not: involve the replacement or repair of any structural load bearing members; reduce the means of exit; affect the light or ventilation; affect room size requirements, sanitary or fire-resistive requirements, use of material not permitted by the code, nor increase the height, area, or capacity of a building.

When you are replacing a gas water heater, we are requesting that you call the Building Department at City Hall (708) 599-5500 for an inspection. This inspection will ensure that the water heater has proper ventilation, a safety valve, and is properly connected. There is no charge for this service, it is for your safety.

NOTE: If you are in doubt as to whether or not a building permit is needed, the Building Department may always be consulted. You may call the Building Department at (708) 599-5500.
