Building Inspectors review and inspect construction projects and issue permits in order to ensure compliance with building codes, and their work is conducted as a regulatory function of a county or local jurisdiction.

Home Inspectors must have a state-issued license.

Do Building Inspectors charge for their work?

Counties and local governments have a schedule of fees for building permit applications. Fees vary from one locality to the next, but they are usually based on the value of the planned construction.
