SDCI Closures, Service Updates, and Inspection Requirements

SDCI customer service areas remain closed until further notice and continue offering services online. King County has approval from the State Department of Health to allow all private construction activities that are low-risk and adhere to strict COVID 19 Job site Requirements. The City of Seattle has issued requirements for construction projects seeking inspections. The City WILL NOT INSPECT any site that does not follow these requirements.


Summary: You may require certain basic information about your property to apply for a land use or building permit. This basic property information, such as the legal description, zoning, property lines, legally established use, recorded easements, and code violations, is usually available from a city, county, or state agency.
