There are two types of inspections performed by the Building Permit & Inspection Services Division: Residential Property Inspections and Construction Inspections
Please call (831) 646-3890 to schedule an appointment.
A residential property inspection requires that an exterior inspection and report be obtained through Building Permit & Inspection Services prior to the close of escrow, transfer of title for sale or exchange of any residential property, on all single-family dwellings and apartment buildings.
You can print the application, fax it to our office at (831) 646-5643, or bring it to our office to schedule a Residential Property Inspection (RPI).
When calling to set up an inspection, please have the following information available:
Sanitary Sewer Lateral Inspection Program
As of January 1, 2019, in accordance with the Monterey City Code 30-1.2 (Ordinance 3579), the City of Monterey began implementing a mandatory "Sanitary Sewer Lateral Inspection and Repair Program". The new program updates the process and uses a new form. The new form replaces the previously accepted "Plumber's report" regarding the condition of the sewer lateral, backwater valve, and sewer relief vent. There will be a $105 sewer later report fee associated with this form.
This is the only form that the City of Monterey will accept when determining the condition of the sanitary sewer lateral systems. We will no longer accept invoices, or later reports typed up on company letterheads.
Over the last few years, the City has rehabbed many of its sewer mains. If you are doing a project which requires a connection to the city sewer main, you will need to coordinate with the Streets Division to have the sewer line hydro-jetted. The city will provide direction regarding the appropriate kind of connection to be made, and that connection will need to be inspected before the job can be backfilled.
Using the Property Review Feature to Check a Property for a Sewer Lateral and a Back Water Valve:
You can check a property in Monterey to see if it has a sewer lateral already installed, along with an associated backwater valve. Click the button below, the Address option at the top right of the page, then the box to at the bottom of the window.
