New Building Permit Requirement

State law requires that all permitted work on commercial properties, residential rentals, and properties for sale must be done by a licensed contractor.

Effective December 1st, 2015, a letter from the licensed contractor stating their affiliation with the project must be provided to the Permit Counter prior to the issuance of the permit.  The letter must include: permit activity number, project address, contractor ROC, phone number and contact address. Letters may be emailed to COTDSDPermits@Tucsonaz.gov or faxed to 520-791-4475.

Single family residences which are owner occupied are exempt.  Signature from home owner on a contractor waiver form will be required.

Thank you.
