Building Permit Fees

The cost of the building permit fee is calculated at the plan check stage by the Building Inspector based on the construction value.  The application processing fee is:

  • $2,030 for a single family dwelling and applications with a construction value in excess of $200,000.00
  • $530 for all other applications
  • $1,030 for a transfer of ownership

Included in amounts quoted is a non-refundable Title Search Fee of $30.  The non-refundable application processing fee quoted above is deducted from the final building permit fee.
