In order to obtain a Building, Plumbing, Heating, Electrical, Fire Alram, or Sprinkler Permit from our office, the applicant will need to do the following:

  1. For all permits: Fill out the appropriate application and pay the calculated fee.

  2. For Building Permits for new construction, additions and/or alterations:

    1. Three sets of drawings, two sets of specifications (if any), permit application and fee shall be submitted to the Department. When approved, all sets of drawings will be stamped and signed and the permit will be issued by the Department. One set of drawings will be retained by the Department and one set shall be maintained at the construction site by the permit applicant. Only complete plans, in accordance with the OHIO BUILDING CODE requirements, will be reviewed. It shall be the responsibility of the permit applicant to check the plan review status following submission of the drawings for approval.

      1. All new structures, additions and renovations shall be designed in accordance with the requirements of the OHIO BUILDING CODE.

      2. All documents submitted for commercial projects shall show proof of responsibility by a licensed professional. Drawings shall bear the stamp or seal of an Architect or Engineer licensed to practice in the State of Ohio.

      3. All stuctural drawings shall show design loads and any calculations required to demonstrate the structural integrity of the design, as well as conformance to requirements of the OBC.

      4. In addition to the above, drawings shall be to scale and shall show as much detail as necessary in order to substantiate conformance to the OBC.

    2. No work is to commence at the job site until the building permits have been obtained.

    3. Revisions to approved plans shall be by submission of revised drawings for approval as outlined in item 1 above.

    4. Plans will be reviewed in the order in which they are received and no plans will be "walked through" at the time of the application.

    5. Prior to the issuance of the Building Permit:

      1. A copy of the Zoning Permit shall be submitted for our file.

      2. If a Sanitary Sewer Permit or Septic Tank Permit has been required, supply our office with the permit number.

      3. If a Water Tap Permit is required for "Toledo Water", supply our office with the Toledo permit number.

      4. Supply our office with the parcel number for the land on which the construction will be situated.
  3. For Heating, Plumbing, Electrical, Fire Alarm & Sprinkler Permits: Drawings should normally have been included with the building plans. If not, three copies of the drawings are required to be submitted along with the application, additional plan review fees, and sealed by a engineer or architect. These permits are issued subsequent to plan review and approval.

Property owner, architect, engineer or contractor may apply for the above permits, which can be obtained by mail by including a stamped, self-addressed envelope with the application and fee. However, no drawings will be returned via mail from our office due to the volume and size of the plans we receive. Permits issued for electrical, plumbing, heating, or refrigeration require a State of Ohio contractor’s license number.

Work started without having applied for required permits will be subject to double the original fee and fines.
