Why use permit search


The Leading Provider of Permit Information Online

Open or missing building permits can throw a major wrench into the closing process, delaying or even canceling the closing, costing you TIME and MONEY. 

But how do you check for open or missing permits? You could figure out the correct department to contact, find the right form, download it, fill it out correctly, scan it, and submit an Open Public Records Act (OPRA) request.  If you do all of that correctly, you could wait for them to respond, follow up if they don’t, and then interpret the results yourself.  

The easiest way to check for open or missing permits is with PermitSearch.  When you use PermitSearch, we go through all available electronic records, and instantly give you a report, based on the data your local municipality makes available. Additionally, we will file an OPRA request on your behalf, manage that process, and present an easy-to-understand report containing both your electronic and paper records.
