The City of Richardson Building Permits online application is available for electrical, plumbing or mechanical permits that are not associated with a general building permit. For permits associated with a general building permit, or if you have questions about whether a permit can be purchased through this site contact Building Inspection at 972-744-4180.


If you are a plumbing, electrical or mechanical contractor and you do not have an online account with the city, please create a new online account before beginning.

Please note: A web account requires that you have already registered with Building Inspection as a contractor.  If you are a general contractor please call 972-744-4180 for information on how to register with Building Inspection.

The types of permits you may obtain online are miscellaneous permits involving electrical, plumbing, gas or mechanical repairs or replacements. Most of these permits require a licensed contractor to obtain the permit and perform the work. The permits may be purchased using VISA, MasterCard, Discover, American Express or an Escrow Account.

If you have any questions, please contact Building Inspection at 972-744-4180. Regular office hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
