E-Permits System for Contractors
The Department of Codes & Building Safety is pleased to introduce “E-Permits” as an expansion of our services which are now available, online. With this latest enhancement, the department is open via the internet to transact routine business 24/7. Registered users of the E-Permit system may now:
- Make inspection requests,
- Schedule inspections
- Check the status of inspections
- Pay re-inspection fees online with a credit card
- Apply for ‘trade permits’ (plumbing, electrical and mechanical permits), as well as some building permits
- Pay permit fees, and
- Self-issue permits to themselves.
Contractors can get registered and obtain a User name and password by emailing PermitIssuance@nashville.gov .
Note 1: Contractors who are currently registered and using the e-Permits system for scheduling inspections have already been preregistered to use this latest internet enhancement by using their current e-Permits user name and password.
Note 2: Only Registered licensed contractors can establish an online account for obtaining permits electronically. Homeowners wanting to obtain a permit must come into our office. The online registration system will not create an account for homeowners.
