Homeowners pulling permits are presumed to be familiar with the building codes and construction practices and are entirely responsible for scheduling inspections in a timely manner. If work progresses beyond the appropriate point at which an inspection should take place or enters an area designated as 'at your own risk,’ you may be required to remove portions of the construction so the inspector can see the required elements for the inspection.  
Requirements for individual inspections are standard for all inspectors in New Smyrna Beach but change from time to time due to changes in the codes, technology and the construction industry. You should refer to all bulletins issued by the building official after the date of this writing for changes that may affect you.

State law requires that a Notice of Commencement be recorded on any project with a cost (including labor and materials) of more than $2,500. The notice must be recorded with the Clerk of the Court and a copy of the recorded document must be posted on the job site before the first inspection. The copy may be faxed to 386-410-2805 or brought to the Building Department, 2650 N. Dixie Freeway, New Smyrna Beach. The permit number must be on the Notice of Commencement, or it will not be accepted.
Inspections must be scheduled by email to or under the Citizens Self Service using the permit number. Please note: Inspection requests submitted before 4:00 P.M. on a work day, will be scheduled for the next work day.  ALL inspections after 4:00 P.M. or on the weekend will be scheduled for the business day after.
