Notarized Letter Requirements

If you authorize an agent or permit service to obtain permits using your contractor's license or to represent you as an owner, that agent or permit service must have a notarized letter bearing your signature. This letter authorizes the bearer to obtain building permits on your behalf.

For More Information

For your protection, the City will not accept letters that have not been properly notarized. For more information, please contact the Building and Safety Division at 562-383-4116.
