Permit Search

How Does It Work?

Buying and selling a home has a lot of moving parts. Everything from cleaning and packing to paying fees and filing paperwork can be overwhelming and stressful. So the last thing you would want are any surprises at closing – surprises like finding open permits.

You could research the home’s permit history yourself, but you have enough to do.

PermitSearch searches permits so you don’t have to.

PermitSearch does this in 2 ways:

  • PermitSearch instantly searches digitized databases for permit information.
  • PermitSearch files OPRA Requests for municipal public records and manages that process. The filing is made within 24 hours of the order placement.

PermitSearch Makes This Easy.

You provide the address; we do the rest.

PermitSearch will provide you with an easy-to-read report that includes permit numbers, dates, work descriptions and permit status.

PermitSearch will also include copies of the documentation from the municipality.

Most PermitSearch reports are emailed within 24 hours of receipt of municipal responses.
