PRIVATE PROVIDER FAQ's

How does it work?

Even when using a private provider, your permit has to be processed through the local jurisdiction, however, if we are part of your team we will review the plans for code compliance and ensure that the plan is correct before submitting your permit, considerably reducing the number of re-submissions. For the inspection portion, you will coordinate your inspections with our office to meet your schedule, providing you with greater flexibility and better time management. We will then communicate with the local building departments on your behalf to provide results. The process is slightly different in each jurisdiction.

Will anyone else review the plans?

Yes, utilizing Elite Permits as your private provider only covers the building department portion of your project. The local jurisdiction will still review for Zoning, Health, Fire , and any other local requirements. Our company provides full coordination with these entities to obtain permits with a minimum number of review cycles.

Will I get a reduction on permit fees by the county/city for inspections and /or plan review if I use private provider?

Unfortunately no, most jurisdictions are funded solely by permit fees, therefore they need to receive all possible fees to maintain operations. Local jurisdictions may choose to audit the review and/or inspections as they wish, therefore all audit expenses will be covered.

Do I have to wait for the county/city inspector to audit before covering my work?

No, by State Statute, once the inspection is done by our inspectors, you can proceed with construction. The audit can occur after the work is covered.

Why should you choose us as your private provider?

Elite Permits has the expertise and knowledge of the local permit requirements and will pass the benefits of our knowledge onto you. We act as an intermediary with the essential skills to un-complicate the process, offering you greater convenience and saving time in the overall completion of your project. Elite Permits provides a complete review of your plans prior to submittal, reducing the possibility of rejection. Utilizing the services of our inspectors allows you to coordinate the date and time frame for your inspections at your convenience rather than waiting around for the county inspector to show up at their leisure. On average, depending on the Jurisdiction, using Elite Permits for your plan review and inspections for a new single family home can save you 4 -5 weeks on the completion of the house.
