Scheduling Inspections?
This is the link to the Building Inspection Division’s Online permit and inspection system,
Or you can call 630-1100 to schedule an inspection on work days from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Still Faxing NOC's?
We have implemented a new email address BIDDocuments@coj.net for submitting certain documents to the Building Inspection Division.  This address will be monitored continually during normal working hours. 

Violation or Permit Record Search
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 BIDArchives@coj.net.

You should also contact the officer of the day at the Regulatory Compliance Department, Municipal Code Compliance Division at 904-255-7000 to inquire about active Property Safety Issues and 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.
