IOWA BUILDING PERMITS

Online Building Permits in Iowa

The State of Iowa has developed an online system that offers online building permits for both residential and commercial construction projects. Here, you will learn everything you need to know about ePermits in Iowa, so that you can begin working right away.

What Type of ePermits in Iowa Are Offered?

To meet the needs of most construction projects, most plumbing, electrical, mechanical, and gas permits can be obtained through online submission. These, as well as all traditional building and renovation permits, require an online application to be created and sent through the ePermit portal.

How Are ePermits in Iowa Obtained?

As with the traditional method of receiving a building permit in Iowa, all the information about your project must be submitted along with the application. Drawings from architects, engineers, contractor plans and anything else that is required must be accurately presented in the online submission in order to obtain delays.

Once the information is submitted, it will be processed and verification sent back to you via email acknowledging the transaction.

Online Building Inspections in Iowa

The electronic building permit system also allows the user to request an inspection and view inspections on-line. Users can look up inspections on a permit, to find out if the inspection passed or failed, and to review any comments made by the inspector.

The inspection request is emailed directly to the inspector and a verification of the request will be immediately sent back, confirming that the property inspection will be conducted as necessary.

Submitting Online Building Permit Applications in Iowa

In order to be compliant with the regulations posted by the State of Iowa’s ePlan Submittal Process, all the plans and documentation must be presented in PDF form.

Should it not be presented in the correct manner, it will result in the application being returned, adding additional time that it will take for the permit to be issued. Once all the documents have been received, there will be a review process.

After each review cycle, applicants may download the comments letter and marked-up plans. Upon plan approved, the “Ready for Issuance” email notification will be sent out.
