For your protection, this account cannot be set up on-line. These services are available to all New Castle County permit-endorsed licensed contractors for inspection scheduling, and for New Castle County HVACR and plumbing contractors for residential work. These are limited to those residential permits that do not require a plan review and/or gas test.
To utilize the permit service, the contractor must pay for the permit through an escrow account or using the building permit credit card payment system defined above. There is no additional charge for this service. It is the responsibility of the applicant to provide complete and truthful information. In the same manner as any other type of application, the information submitted is the property of New Castle County and will be utilized as permanent records.
