Building Inspections is a division of Planning and Development Services tasked with overseeing the building phase of development by reviewing plans, processing permits and performing inspections. The division mission is to ensure that the construction, alteration or maintenance of buildings conforms to recognized standards for building safety and quality of life.
2021 Building Codes will be adopted as of May 1, 2022
All General Contractors are required to register with the City on a yearly basis and pay a fee. Trade contractors who hold a current state license are not required to register with the City but are required to provide information regarding the license holder.
The City of Southlake continues to conduct all building inspections. However, due to the current circumstances with COVID-19, some changes have been made to the City’s regular building inspection protocols.
Update to Inspection Scheduling:
Next Day Inspections: Reasonable efforts are made to complete inspections on the day requested (when requests are received by 7 a.m. the day of the inspection). Circumstances sometimes require some inspections to be moved to the following day. If this happens, the inspection will be rescheduled automatically. Check the online system for inspection results and updates.
