Requesting Inspections

Inspection requests should be made by the authorized permit holder or his/her designee.


The Building Department has various ways of requesting inspections:

* By dialing (305) 416-1100 (Press option 2) and you will be transferred to a 311 operator.

* By dialing (305) 416-1100 (Press option 3) for the clerical staff.

* By accessing iBuildMiami (Enter permit number and click on “Submit”)

To request inspections through our automated system, you will need to enter a username and password. If you are a contractor, your User Id is your contractor's license number and your password is the business address zip code as was provided to the Building Department.

If you are a homeowner and have obtained a permit as owner/builder, regretfully, you will not be able to use the online service to schedule an inspection. For owner/builder permits please use all other methods of requesting inspections.
