Almost any work done in Mobile County, whether residential or commercial, requires a permit. Notable exceptions include, but may not be limited to:
(A) Making changes to your home such as painting, redecorating, changing countertops, installing new cabinetry, replacing light fixtures, ceiling fans, or replacing equipment that requires no rewiring.
(B) Erecting a fence seven (7) feet or less in height.
If you have any questions, it is recommended that you contact the Inspection Services office at (251) 574-3507 or [email protected] prior to beginning any work.
Mobile County Inspection Services has begun Electronic Plan Review (EPR) for both residential and commercial permitting. You can access the EPR website and a brief overview of the steps can be found in this EPR submittal guideline.
