Building Inspection Division Online Property Search can be used to obtain and print the information about building code violations, COs and research permit details. Use the "Guest Sign In" and "Search for" (Top Left) Property by Address. The address number is your link to the permits or Building code enforcement details. The permit number is your link to permit details. The CV tab is complaint/violation. Note; if you are not able to print the CO it was most likely generated from our old computer system. You may email our archives section at SCHEIMAN@coj.net Jerry Scheiman.

You should also contact the officer of the day at Municipal Code Compliance 904-255-7000 to inquire about active Property Safety Issues and Mr. Bryan Mosier at the same number to inquire about abatement liens. A due-diligent check should also include our local utility company JEA 904-665-6000 to see if there are any utility holds in place.
