In-House Review Permits

Larger and more complicated projects that are not eligible for Over-the-Counter submittal are brought in house for review and are known as in-house review permits.  
 
Submitting New In-House Permits
If you have a new permit application for an in-house review project, please email dbicustomerservice@sfgov.org with the information detailed below about your project. Please submit only one project per email and use this email subject line: New In-House Review Permit Request - [insert property address]. Your email should include the following information:

  1. Contact Information (applicant name, phone number and email)
  2. Property Address (block and lot or Assessor’s Parcel Number)
  3. Short description of the scope of work

We will contact you to begin the pre-screening process in the order we receive your email. Note that we have received a large number of in-house review permit applications, so it may take us a few weeks to get back to you.

Previously Submitted In-House Review Permits
If you previously submitted an in-house review permit application online prior to August 17, you will remain in the queue for permit processing. For the latest information, please visit www.sfdbi.org/previouslysubmittedpermits.
