Do I have to be present during an inspection?
The owner or contractor must be present during an inspection, unless the owner has given specific permission to the inspector and the work to be inspected is on the exterior with all permits and plans accessible. Inspections cannot be done if access to the work is not available, or if unsupervised minor children or unsecured animals are present. For additional information, please contact the Building Division at 619. 667.1176.
