Residential Building

Residential Building Permit

Any work done on a residential property in the City of Spartanburg will require a residential building permit. Residential building permits can be issued to a property's owner or to state and City-licensed contractors.

Depending upon the type of work to be done, a number of applications may need to be completed. For assistance regarding building permits, please visit our Building Inspections page.

Additional Permit Applications

Depending on the scope of work to be done, additional applications may need to be submitted.

Building Plan Review

For major works, a building plan will need to be submitted for review by the City's Building Inspections department. No review is needed for minor work, such as water heater installation and repair, minor interior work, plumbing, minor demolition, etc.

**NOTE: Beginning in June 2023 we will be requesting all commercial plan reviews be submitted electronically; please submit commercial plans at this link going forward: This link will work for all drawings and associated documents. We will still allow a hard set of drawings to be submitted but in addition to the electronic submittal.**
