Building Division: Fax Inspection Line
You may request your building inspection by FAX by following these guidelines:
Fill out form:
- Be sure it's legible!
- Circle the day you'd like the inspection.
- Remember that all inspections should be ready any time after 8 a.m. or a $47 re-inspection fee may be charged. If you have an a.m. or p.m. preference, please note it. While we can't guarantee your request, we will do our best.
- Circle the inspection(s) you're requesting. If what you need isn't on the list, clearly describe it in the "Comments/Notes" section.
- Use the "Comments/Notes" section for information such as Lock Box numbers and unique information.
Final Inspection Requests:
Remember that all projects require a final inspection. For residential, obtain electrical final approval from Yamhill County 503-434-7516 before arranging for our final. If you are given temporary residential occupancy, all items must be completed and approved within 60 days. For commercial, you must obtain approvals from Yamhill County, and City departments (Planning, Fire, and Engineering) before our office will perform a final. If you are granted temporary commercial occupancy, all items must be completed and approved within 90 days.
As with the 24-hour inspection request line, your request must be received by 7 a.m. to be done that business day. All requests received after 7 a.m. will be performed the next business day. The date stamp recorded on the incoming FAX will be used to determine time of receipt. It is your responsibility to be sure it has been received - most machines let you know if it was successfully sent.
We will check our FAX machine a couple times a day – just as we do the 24-hour request phone line. Please do not call our office to check to see if it's been received.
That's all there is to it! Please contact our office at the above number if you have any questions.
