Building Permits & Forms


  Updated 2011 Permit Fees 


For your protection, permits are required before any home construction or improvements can be done.  Permits are issued to the person who will physically perform the work for which the permit is sought.  Permits are obtained at the Building Department from 8:00 A.M.- 3:30 P.M., Monday through Friday.  Check with the department before beginning any construction, electrical, plumbing, heating or air conditioning work. Permits are also required for garage sales and satellite dishes.


Upon request and for informational purposes only, the Building Department can provide homeowners with a list of contractors who have met the registration requirements for the City of South Euclid, and are licensed, bonded and insured to work in the city. Although neither the Building Department nor the City recommends contractors, the Registered Contractors list can be a great help to the homeowner in choosing a licensed contractor for their project
