Residential Required Procedures

Step 1: Post Street Address or Lot Number
Spartanburg County Building Codes Department requires that the street address or lot number be posted at each site in clear view from the road. Inspections cannot be made if the inspector is unable to locate the jobsite and a re-inspection fee may be charged.

Step 2: Post the Inspection Card
The inspection card must be on site at the time of the inspection and visible from the street. The onsite inspection card will inform the builder of the status of the inspections. Inspectors are required to sign all approvals on the permit card.

Step 3: Verify You have Received the Required Inspection Approvals
The inspection card list each of the inspections or series of inspections in the order in which they will occur.

Work may not progress on any part of the construction project beyond the approval of the last inspection signed off on the permit card. The initials and date of a Spartanburg County Building Inspector on the posted permit card indicate approval. It can be very time consuming and costly for the permit holder to uncover walls or demolish construction that has proceeded past the required inspection point.

Step 4: Follow the Inspection Scheduling Procedures 
All inspections must be requested before 6:30 A.M. the day of the desired inspection. Request made after 6:30 A.M. will be scheduled for the following business day. Inspection times cannot be prearranged or guaranteed. It is not advisable to schedule concrete on the same day as the inspection. The inspection time cannot be guaranteed, and due to workloads, inspectors may run late. Every effort will be made to contact you if the inspector is unable to make your inspection due to workload or circumstance.

You will be given instructions on how to request inspections at the time the permit is issued.
