Who May Apply For and Pick-Up A Building Permit?
Anyone may apply for a building permit as long as any applicable plan check fees can be paid for.

Only the property owner may pick-up their permit if it was submitted as an owner/builder permit; however, if the owner wishes someone to act as their agent and pick-up their permit a "Act as Agent" form must be completed and signed by the owner and submitted to our office.

If a licensed Nevada contractor is listed on they permit, then the contractor of record must pick-up the permit. Licensed contractors must provide a list of approved agents to our Department prior to any agent being able to sign for a permit. This form can e found on our Applications, Forms & Handouts Page, EZ Permits Page and Office Page.
