  • The owner's name, address, telephone
  • Know the work you will be performing and the contract value
  • Any sketches/drawings needed of the work performed to include the square footage of the project
  • The fee for the permit
  • If you are not the bona fide homeowner living on the premises, you must be a licensed contractor.

  • A zoning permit already obtained if it applies to the work being performed.
