Plan review fees

Applicants for building permits must pay the plan review fee upon submittal of the building permit application. Previously, this fee was due, along with the building permit fee, when the permit was picked up.
Permit applications that are submitted without this fee, will not be reviewed until this fee is paid. This rule does not apply to all applications submitted prior to this date. 

Trade perm​it fees for additional inspections

Permit holders of all trade permits (electrical, mechanical, plumbing) will be required to make payment in advance, including any and all inspections which were not included at the time of the original permit issuance. ​

This includes the necessary inspections required to finalize any open permits. The fee for all inspections added to an open permit will be assessed at $35 per inspection. Payment is to be made to the City of Ann Arbor.​
